Sexual Holiness Hits Home at Pastor/Wife Conference!

On Friday May 5th All Pro Pastors had our first Pastors/Wives conference. It was a great day. Attorney John Stemberger founder of the Florida Family Policy Council shared many truths about the freedoms and the restrictions Pastors have. He shared about 501C3 corporations and whether it is necessary for a Church to have this designation. He is a part of the Alliance Defense Fund which is a network of attorneys nationwide who offer free services to churches and pastors to defend your constitutional rights. Free consultations over the telephone are available for many different legal issues. Please feel free to call his office at: 407-251-5130. “May we say another thank you for the countless hours and resources you spend defending our freedoms and liberties as Floridians and Americans!!!” We do not take this for granted and encourage everyone who reads this to support your great life’s work. Amen

Rob Casatta, talked about the importance of managing your money. The principle of telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it goes was a central point he tried to encourage. As a staff Pastor and a trained money professional Rob has seen the impact bad money management can have on a couple or individual. His words challenged each of us to become pro-active with our money and to take a hands-on approach.

Dr. Jay Dennis Pastor of 1st Baptist church at the Mall in Lakeland Florida, revealed how challenging pornography is in society today. With the easy access to porn on the internet many “good” people have become victims of their own weaknesses and lost families and fortunes because of this growing epedemic. He offered step by step means for men to get this illuminated from their lives. Everyone received a workbook and a 31 day supply of memory cards. He shared his vision to see men completely freed from this stronghold! Thanks Dr. Jay for sharing your heart and encouraging words!

Richard Mull, founder of Operation Lightforce and author of several books, shared a powerful word on the freedom that comes with real forgiveness. Discovering the many issues that hold us back or hold us down is the key to experiencing freedom. When these obstacles are removed your life can start moving at an accelerated pace and healing takes place. This was a life breathing message that rang true for all.

Dr Allan Meyers, shared by video his first session called Valiant Man. This is a 10 week program on sexual discipleship. It may be the one and only program for churches to use that can help men handle their God given sexual appetite. This presentation pointed out the difference in how men and women are made and how they think about sex. The women were also a part of this and learned some of the challenges men face “within their own skin”. It is a great relief knowing that men can be discipled in this area of life and be taught how to make sex ‘Holy”! We recommend that every pastor go through this program.

A special thanks to Moses Brown who sang and testified during lunch and shared a word about his trip to  introduce All Pro Pastors in Kenya Africa at a Pastors conference there! We have reports of over 500 pastors are now part of the Kenya /Uganda All Pro Pastors Africa chapter. Praise God!

Linda and I were extremely blessed to have this Conference at “Champions Church” in Winter Haven, Florida. The church leadership lead by Nolan and Kathy Edwards provided everything from Praise and Worship(wasn’t this awesome!) beautifully designed Programs for everyone, Media and Sound staff (Shannon and Jon), assistance with lunch(big Chris) and untold hours of help, the list could just keep going. Thank you Thank you! Special thanks to pastor Margaret too!

A very special thanks to Kingdom Walk, a Christian Business Men group in Winter Haven. They furnished lunch(by Devin’s Champions Smokehouse),helped served lunch, and served throughout the day, all because they love Pastors and their wives. They did everything possible to make the conference perfect. We also thank our good friends from Travel by Horizon, Rhonda Hardee and “H” Fry who stayed all day and worked side by side with Kingdom Walk.

A big word of thanks goes to our sponsor “Lake Placid Camp and Retreat Center” in Lake Placid, Florida. They have facilities to handle all types and sizes of camps/retreats. Anthony Haney executive director has offered short sabbaticals to Pastors who need a 2-4 day getaway at no charge. This is an offer you should definitely take.

The biggest thanks of all goes to our Lord Jesus who was with us all day long and “HOLY SPIRIT” was active and mighty!! Praise God! Thank you Father!!!

Many Blessings,

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!
