All Pro Pastors Newsletter March 2012


March 2012

Dear Friends and Beloved of God,

Linda and I are sincerely thankful for your prayers and continued support of All Pro Pastors. God has heard your prayers and this ministry is growing at an amazing rate. Pastors and their wife’s are testifying on a  daily basis of how APP is encouraging them and giving them strength to stay the course.

Pastor Moses Brown from Tampa spent 10 days in February for a Pastors conference in Kenya, Africa and started a new All Pro Pastors Chapter. Since his visit 16 New Champion Tables have started in Africa. 

 “ChampionTables” are starting to form all throughout the world, simply because Pastors need each other as men to lean on, talk to, laugh with and cry with. Most people do not know how lonely being a Pastor or a Pastors Wife can be. We need to be encouraged to live up to the standards God expects and requires us to. And perhaps more so, we need trusted friends to pick us up when we fail and fall short. Praise God that a great “Champions Table” will not kick us when we are down. We lift each other up and offer a shoulder to lean on for as long as it takes. The “Table” challenges us to keep our relationships with God and family in proper order so that we stay qualified as Pastors to lead and be living examples.

You need to know that you are helping reach Ten’s of Thousand’s of people for Jesus throughout the world through All Pro Pastors. The Pastors that we serve are encouraged to stay the course and stand strong through the struggles. They are comforted and challenged to link arms with each other to hold each other up when the going gets tougher!! These Pastors lead large and small congregations that rely on them to be living examples of Jesus. They give hope when things look hopeless. This ministry provides a safe place where Pastors can rest each week and truly lay their mantle off for a few minutes and breathe in a fresh breath of Holy Spirit with a few other hungry warriors for Christ! It is a place that they receive a re-fill of hope for themselves and power to move mountains!

We ask that you pray that every Pastor have the opportunity and challenge to become a part of a Champion Table. We are expecting to reach 1000’s of Pastors this year through the internet, personal engagements, Pastors telling Pastors and other media we expect God to open up. We ask that you pray for God to open doors and to provide provisions to see this vision come to pass quickly. What do you believe would happen if our Pastors started loving one another across all the divisions that exist today? We would see an amazing outpouring of His Spirit that would shake the world from the bottom up to the top!

Thank you for continuing to help us help Pastors develop trust with one another and embrace personal challenging accountability! Now tell someone else about this ministry and what God is doing.

Your Servants, Paul and Linda

Pastor Paul Pickern is married to his wife Linda. They have 5 children (Tony, Stephanie, Dale, Seth, Schyler) and 11 grand children. Their home is in Plant City, Florida between Tampa and Orlando. Paul was born in Belleville, Illinois and Linda was born in Charleston, West Virginia.

Experience
Paul is the Founder and CEO of All Pro Pastors Ministry, a ministry that encourages and challenges Pastors to join together as Kingdom Brothers to develop trust, accountability and unity. It is a ministry that strengthens Pastors marriages, families, and ministries by establishing “Champions Table’s”. The “Champions Table” is a safe place where Pastors can meet together and develop genuine relationships.

Paul’s wife Linda is a vital part of the ministry too. She minister’s to pastor wives and hosts a website/blog called “Women R Champions“. The many women in ministry throughout the world are connected thru this women directed ministry.

Paul speaks to 1000’s of pastors in Conferences, Lunches, Ministerial Meetings, Radio, and website conferencing about the challenges they face and how to face these challenges. The first “Champions Table” started April 2007 in Plant City Florida and can now be found in many countries as Pastors are connecting in great numbers throughout the world. Many Tables started forming in 2012 in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania by Pastors who caught the vision!

Paul comes from a deep heritage of several generations of Pastors. He has been a Christian since October 1959 and has been a student of the Bible since then. He spoke his first words to a church at the age of 3 years. Learning God’s Word was a way of life. Pastor Paul started singing and speaking at many meetings through the 60’s and 70’s in multiple denominations. He was the featured soloist from 1971-72 on the Television show “The Way”. He has written several plays, and the study guide series The Agape’ Lifestyle. He has had numerous magazine articles published.

Paul felt the call on his life at a very early age. He never had a desire to become a Pastor only to obey God whom he was called by and instructed.

Paul living as a Pastor’s son, serving as a Staff Pastor, and also counseling many Pastors gave him the experience to understand completely the needs in Pastors and their families. God instructed him specifically that he was to serve Pastors and help them from being deceived and destroyed by the world and the enemy. The vision for All Pro Pastors came to Pastor Paul in 2003 to reach ALL Pastors, Bishops, Evangelists and Ministers throughout the world. Paul has been in a “Champions Table” since November 2005. In January 2009 All Pro Pastors and Champion Tables were introduced publicly in Tampa, Florida and today hundreds of Tables and thousands of Pastors are connected worldwide. These “Tables” are saving marriages, ministries and lives!
