About Us

The Challenge

Across the church landscape, we are facing a soul care and mental health crisis.

Studies show that as many as 42% of pastoral leaders report suffering from burnout.

Without relief or solutions, many leave vocational ministry altogether. With each exit, they leave an immediate void and rippling repercussions felt across churches, families and communities.

The Pastor’s Refuge exists to provide urgent relief, support and resources to our ministry leaders, so they can live well and finish strong.

Learn more about our goal to help 2000 leaders live well by 2028 and what you can do to help us rise to this challenge.

Here's how we can help.

The Pastor’s Refuge is here to help pastors from every church, anywhere in the world. Our mission includes supporting and serving our ministry leaders' spouses, partners and families.

Restoration - mind, body and soul - begins with a hard reset and much-deserved rest. The Pastor’s Refuge journey begins with one of our unique retreats, our signature four-day experience designed to help you rest, while connecting with like-minded ministry leaders.

Following the retreat, you will be invited to connect with your newfound support network through our Encounter Connections which meet virtually monthly, these small groups provide ongoing growth, learning and encouragement.

We want you to live well and finish strong as you flourish in your place of ministry.
