Nicaragua Pastors Excited About Starting Champions Tables!

 


I have just returned from a Pastors conference in Matagalpa Nicaragua with Pastors Nolan Edwards and Willie Bolden. Pastor Edwards invited me to join him and Pastor Bolden on this Pastors Conference sponsored by Champions Church in Winter Haven, Florida, with my sole purpose to share about All Pro Pastors and what we are doing worldwide in Pastors lives and their communities. On three different days I had the honor to speak to a new group of Pastors and it was truly amazing at the response. The Holy Spirit moved in a powerful way and the Pastors embraced the “Champions Table” as possibly a way for Pastors to come together for the very first time. It looked like 100% of the Pastors stood to join a “Table”. Pastor Luis Corea, one of the Pastor Associations main leaders, has volunteered to lead the All Pro Pastors movement in Matagalpa. Pastor Corea is now our Ambassador and he is very committed to taking this to the 120 plus Pastors in his city. Pastor Corea has a very strong church and is on Television weekly. Pray for him as he moves forward. Pastor Adonay Gonzales is a Pastor who had come over from Honduras to assist Pastor Nolan with an outreach to Pastors and many special events and to help with the conference. He also asked to become an Ambassador for APP and to take the “Champions Table” to Honduras. He is a leader in the GERAZIN church group which has 200 churches in Honduras. He helps to open new churches in Nicaragua and Costa Rica. We look forward to working with him to help start All Pro Pastor Chapters throughout his region of ministry. He is a great man of God. We left on Sunday May 18th and returned Saturday May 24th. As part of a team we had several worship services to speak at and ministered to many people each night. Pastor Nolan Edwards is planning a city wide Crusade with the local Pastors. Getting them together to work together and develop relationships is why All Pro Pastors was invited to join the team. Pastor Edwards has been in a Champions Table for over two years and he has seen how it is bringing the Body of Christ (The Church ) together in a transforming way. The Pastors in Nicaragua have caught the vision too. Please pray for us as we work to facilitate and supply the needed information and supplies that they need in the Central American Spanish language. Praise God that Pastor Tony Ponceti from Lakeland, Florida  is an Ambassador with APP and is bi-lingual. He has agreed to help and already travels often to Honduras. I also want to thank Pastor Edwards for inviting us to be a part of His great work in Nicaragua and to also ask for you to pray for him as he  diligently strives to minister the wonderful people of Nicaragua.

“Spirit” Powerful at 1st Missionary Church Pastors Luncheon

Pastor Cliff Dollison and 1st Missionary Baptist Ch in Winter Haven, Fl. hosted a full house of Pastors for an All Pro Pastors/Ministerial Alliance luncheon on March 7th. The love and unity bringing pastors together across denominations and race at this luncheon demonstrated the power of the Kingdom when its leaders (local pastors) get connected. At this luncheon it was clearly seen that when we accept the assignment that God has given us as individuals and do it without jeolousy or discrimination the Body can then work together embracing our differences as strengths, not weakness.

This luncheon was very powerful and we heard many anointed testimonies and encouragements from speakers; Pastor Nolan Edwards, Bishop Willie Bolden and Pastor W F Floyd. Pastor Ron Ellis gave a very compelling word of challenge and inspiration. Pastors were hugging one another, praying for one another and connecting with one another. These Pastors were setting a new standard of Trust and Friendship that needs to grow across their community.

The presence of God was felt very strongly as over 40 pastors and friends, black, hispanic, and white linked hearts together as shepherds for the Kingdom! Every Pastor was challenged to become the “Champion”, God requires of His Leaders.

Many Pastors committed to starting Champion Tables and others to become Ambassadors for APP. The Spirit of God brought a contagious excitment of brotherhood that we pray will continue to grow and expand in this region.

Thank you Pastor Cliff for having the heart and desire for your Pastor friends in your community and your hunger to see Winter Haven brought to salvation!

1st Baptist Bartow Fl. invites APP to Share the Vision to Area Pastors

On March 5th  Pastor Ron Burks and 1st Baptist Bartow, Fl. Hosted and treated Pastors to a tremendous meal and wonderful fellowship. We believe that this 1st for them will start a Kingdom movement to see many Pastors join forces to reach their community for Salvation!

Special Guest Ron Ellis brought the house down with words of challenge and motivation. Pastor Ron Ellis, the founder of BAM International as well as Exalted Word Ministries speaks all across America with an annointed word from God. He challenged all to reach to the next level!

Many pastors left the luncheon charged up and ready to be the Champion God called them to be, starting at home! We were surprised when one guest even volunteered to be an Ambassador for APP to India. It was another day of breakthrough. PTL

Thank you pastor Ron Burks for opening your heart and church to APP and the local Pastors. We pray that this beginning will bring a renewed committment for Pastors to link arms together to reach Bartow for Jesus!!

Africa Mission a God-Sized Success!

Praise God, Pastor Peter Simwa from Eldoret Kenya did an outstanding job preparing the way for APP to come and share with over 200 pastors in three days of conference. His efforts and prayers were rewarded by a mighty move of God. Many Pastors were encouraged and connected together in the Body/ Kingdom of God with renewed harmony and unity. Several Bishops, Apostles, Dr.s and other leaders met with us and have embraced the mission of All Pro Pastors as a vital part of their ministry to reach Kenya, Africa and the World for Jesus Christ.

Peter Simwa was commissioned and anointed/appointed as the Chief Ambassador for Africa and specifically the Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania region. Pastor Patrick Ogoda APP Ambassador for Uganda and Pastor Bosco Odongo traveled for two days to be with us in Eldoret. Pastor Joseph Chai stepped up in a big way to help our team while in Eldoret. Pastor Peter Simwa’s Champion Table brothers Wycliffe Masika has a Pastors Training School and had several students at the conference and Pastor John and his wife treated us to lunch each day in their home. It was wonderful! There were many Pastors who treated us with great honor and we were humbled by their outpouring of love and compassion.

We must also point out that APP also appointed a new Ambassador to Tanzania while in Eldoret. Pastor Patroba Ammolo has been pastoring for 6 years and the Saturday after our conference he graduated and received his ministerial degree. Praise God.

When we arrived in Nairobi, the first day, we were greeted by a host of Pastors from Neno Evangelism Center, a great church in Niarobi led by Apostle James Maina. He has founded a church of over 20,000 in Niarobi with 300 plus churches throughout Kenya. Pastor Simon Njenga a Kenyan now from America made the introductions and they treated the team as royalty. (Pastor Njenga was a gift from God!) He took great care for us and became a vital part of our ministry team.  Our team led Pastor conferences in Kitegela (thanks to pastor Simon Obunga’s fine preparations) and preached in several outdoor crusade meetings. Many were healed, delivered and SAVED.

We were each blessed as we poured ourselves out each day for Jesus. It seemed that every day each one of us became exhausted physically because the power of God flowed through us to so many different people and in new ways. Many thousands of lives were touched and God smiled upon this ministry. The Kenyan people are very loving people and have a hunger for God. They are heart broken by how America has appeared to step away from the Christian heritage that our country was founded upon. The past several years they have actively sent powerful men of God to America as Evangelists and Pastors to start new work. They have a sincere burden for the USA. (WE may discuss this further at a later date)

As we close out this news, let us say how thankful we are to our many partners who have joined this ministry to reach out to Pastors throughout the world. The impact of Saving Pastors stretches for greater than a Pastor and his family. It reaches the congregation, the orphans, the hungry, the hurting, the poor, the shoeless, the naked, the sick, the dieing, and the homeless. This Ministry called All Pro Pastors is reaching more people for the Kingdom of God than we will ever know. I Praise God that we can say, this mission to Africa was a great success and at the same time it is just a beginning. We have been asked to return and to have conferences (teaching, preaching, saving, healing, delivering and empowering) next time to thousands of Pastors. The fire that was started is believed to be the FIRE of GOD that can reach all of Kenya and Africa for Jesus. The coming together of the Pastors in unity has never happened before. It is a Miracle!

Please pray for us as we answer this great call and commission to go back to Africa and to all parts of the world who are crying out for the Kingdom of God to come together and save them. We love you!

Pastor Luncheon at the River Church Blesses Many!

Thursday August 2, 2012 The River Church of Tampa Florida hosted one of our All Pro Pastors Luncheon. It was set up for 64 pastors/spouses and we experienced a great overflow. We heard testimonies from Pastors Dan Reid and Willie Bolden about their Champion Tables and the benefits that they personally enjoy as part of one. We also had a special surprise when the Founder of the Florida Family Policy Council, John Stemberger gave us a visit. He shared briefly about what he is doing to protect our rights as Christians in Florida.

We must applaud The River for providing a fabulous completely organic meal. They treated our local pastors as royalty. Dr. Rodney and Adonica Howard Browne were the perfect hosts. It was a true expression of seeing the Kingdom in its fullness as they opened their church in genuine love to Baptist, Assembly of God, Church of God, Messianic Jews, Throne of David, non-denomination,  and many others.

We have already established one new Champion Table and others are soon to come as the result of Thursday”s luncheon. Every Pastor that I personally spoke with said that they were encouraged and learned a lot. When we asked Dr Rodney to close the meeting out many were surprised at his compassion for America and passion to see Pastors come together in unity.

We want to thank The River for being great hosts and opening their doors for APP to have a Pastors/spouse luncheon as their guests. Praise God for places that are completely open and invite the Body of Christ to come together without reservation.

Please contact us if you would like to host a Pastors luncheon at your church.

On September 27th  we have a Pastor/spouse luncheon scheduled at the First Baptist Church at the Mall in Lakeland Florida. Please see “Events” for the details. All Pastors are invited.

Thanks Mike, Sherry and WTBN in Tampa

All Pro Pastors was blessed by being on WTBN AM radio in Tampa, Florida with Mike and Sherry Moore. Sandi Patty was their call in guest while we were there. Linda and I shared how APP is encouraging Pastors and their families. Being a Pastor can be as trying on their family as it can be rewarding as a servant of God. We ask that you pray for our Pastors and their families. Pastor wife’s often are under a lot of pressure to do things that they are not called to do by the church. We pray also that churches encourage Pastor wife’s and do everything possible to protect and support them as a family.  

We Thank Mike and Sherry and WTBN for inviting us to share about this often forgotten need.

F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Question About “All Pro Pastors”:

When was All Pro Pastors started? The vision to get started was in 2003, the first “Champions Table “ Started April of 2007, and the actual kick-off to reach out in Florida started in January 2009 in Tampa

Why was it started? Because there is a great sense of loneliness and isolation identified by 70% of Pastors, and God through the Holy Spirit laid on our heart to start it. Pastors live on an island and sometimes we shut everyone out including our wife and children. Only another Pastor can feel what this is like. (I know from personal experience.)

What about Pastor’s wives and Women in Ministry? All Pro Pastors is directed at men who are Pastors. This is at the Holy Spirit’s instruction. Women R Champions is the name of our women’s ministry. Women Ministers may start “all women” Champions Tables. These are organized within our Pastors/Wives organization called “Women R Champions”. Women are vital in this ministry and we want to give you the much needed support too. Pastor wives are often the unsung heroes of the church and the most forgotten. It is our prayer that “Women R Champions” will meet your personal needs at any and every level.

How many members are in All Pro Pastors? We estimate 10,000-15,000 worldwide. Our new on-line registration(Free) was just turned on October 2015. We have Chapters that are led by Ambassadors. Chapters are made up of 2-20 “Champions Tables” who are facilitated by “Champion” pastors who agree to start the “Table”. We stay connected through our website, Skype, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.

www.allpropastors.org

What are some of the countries outside the USA that APP have members/chapters? Kenya, Nigeria, West Africa, Pakistan, Germany, Cyprus, Nicaragua this is just a sampling.

What is a Champions Table? A group of (4) Pastors who are committed to meet each week for about 1-2 hours for personal encouragement, accountability, prayer and relationship building. We have started over 100 Champion Tables throughout Florida but we also have 100’s of Pastors connected with us throughout America and the world. In Africa alone based on verbal reports we estimate well over 1000 Champions Tables have started. As of January 2015 we estimated 10,000-15,000 pastors have connected with us in some way. Our New website which opened October 1, 2015 allows Pastors to register on-line.

What are the benefits for a Pastor to register? Anyone who registers will be given a secure portal in the website which gives immediate access to Free resources and weekly updates/news and video messages.

Also, notices for events will be posted and Pastor Testimonies. This is the doorway to many new friends.

What is the most common testimony of Pastors who are in Champions Tables? 1)I feel safe at my Table 2)Finally a place I can really talk 3)It has saved my marriage 4)It has saved my ministry 5) It is not a meeting, it is place of trust and rest each week 6)It is the only place my wife pushes me out the door to go to7)A place I can go as a man with no holding back 8)Opened my eyes to new revelations of truth that I desperately needed.9)I now know what real trust is. 10)My Table has literally saved my life and become my prayer fortress!

Why does All Pro Pastors have lunches/breakfasts and other special events? To introduce Pastors to All Pro Pastors and to give them relevant information they can use in their ministry and life. Also, to introduce them to fellow Pastors in their community.

What will take place at one of these luncheons? Pastors are treated to a nice meal, they may see a 4 minute video about APP, a few Pastors will share how being a part of APP has impacted them and we usually try to give away some free gifts. Frequently we will have a guest join us by Skype and speak or pray for the Pastors and sometimes a guest speaker will deliver an impactful message.

 

How many Pastors usually attend? Usually between 10-250. It depends on whether it is the first time in an area, whether it is an All Pro Pastor Chapter Sponsoring it or a local ministers group, and if the host Pastor embraces the event and reaches out to area Pastors. (Also if advertising is used)

What do you offer Pastors? What we offer ANY Pastor is a way to connect and build lifelong trusted friends through “Champion Tables”. This is your opportunity as Pastors to not walk alone!

What are the requirements to join? Our ministry is focused on men who are Pastors who profess Jesus as their Lord and Savior and recognize Him and Him alone as the way to eternal life. It is basically a Pastor to Pastor ministry. The purpose is to help these men develop trusted friendships through encouraging accountability and to become great husbands and dads, great roles models based on how they live not just what they preach, and to stay healthy in their ministry.

About All Pro Pastors

Do you know that many pastors today live very lonely lives. Many pastors say, “I am surrounded by masses and still I am standing on an island all alone!” In recent surveys asking pastors what is the toughest thing about being a pastor, the re-sounding number one answer was “not having a trusted loyal friend”.

All Pro Pastors is a ministry founded in 2007 that addresses this issue head on. It is a “pastor-to-pastor” ministry bringing pastors together in very small groups of 4 for developing trust with encouragement, accountability and lifelong relationships. It is also a ministry that provides on-going words of inspiration and motivation with helpful resources, tools and special events that we can link into.

As men it is very easy to keep things bottled up inside and as pastors our very nature puts us on guard. Many pastors are stepping down or out of the pastoral ministry each and every day due to the pressure and high expectations that we feel. The fact is, only another pastor can relate to what we feel. It is with this in mind that we started what we call, “The Champions Table“.

The development of “The Champion’s Table is a God given instruction to be shared with all pastors. Pastor, the Table is a safe place! Jesus gave us an example to follow. We also call it “The Jesus Model“.

We believe that God has called pastors to lead, to set the example, to be His “Champion Role Models”. Through the Champion’s Table we see God changing pastor’s lives and their families, becoming leaders that men want to follow, and filling the void of aloneness by building trustworthy friendships!

All Pro Pastors is reaching around the GLOBE through the power of technology and “pastors telling pastors”. Pastors throughout North America, Central America, Asia, Europe and Africa are forming Champion’s Tables in increasing numbers and report that they are having a great impact on all relationships. Many other Continents and Countries are connecting the Kingdom together through Champion’s Tables and are sharing with us astonishing testimonies.

Note:(The Champions Table format can be used by any Ministers Group, Association or Organization as a tool to strengthen and sustain their efforts)

Mission Statement

The mission of our ministry is to empower Pastors to become Champion Role Models for all people through personal encouragement, challenge, achievement, and accountability that by this our Lord Jesus may say “Well done my good and faithful servant!” and to see the “Body of Christ” joined together with one heart and mind in love for one another.

Letter from the Founders

Dear Pastor,

In 2003 the Lord clearly spoke to me that we as Pastors need to learn to trust one another and to love each other. He also said that we as Pastors need to live” Holy” lives at home and embrace accountability. This word started my wife and me on a journey to begin a ministry called All Pro Pastors (APP).

The Lord gave me the vision of 4 pastors meeting together as men and this was to be called “The Champions Table”! The Champion’s Table is the foundation of APP and have helped Pastors throughout the world to experience miracles, start lifelong friendships, save marriages and ministries, and unify the Body for Kingdom building. We are committed to praying for you and encouraging you to stay the course! When we say we love you, we mean it.

Please take the time to read through some of these great testimonies and to watch some of the Pastor’s Testimonies  and much more on our All Pro Pastors YouTube Channel. We are absolutely sure the Holy Spirit has given this to us for all pastors and it will bless you.

As a Pastor it is your decision as to whether you want a strong “Accountability and Encouragement” table or simply a Fellowship/Friendship table. Both are extremely essential in your life. These are a few examples of what makes a successful Champion’s Table:

  1. Pastors who meet together with Pastors from different churches/denominations/tribes/etc (if at all possible).
  2. “Four” Pastors are the best number at a Table. 5 or more reduce “Trust Building” genuine intimacy.
  3. There are stages “Strong Tables” go through. : Fellowship-Friendship-Honesty-Encouragement-Commitment-Trust-Accountability-Achievement-Success-CHAMPIONS
  4. The Table is not a Bible study. (You should already have this). It is easy for us as Pastors to avoid real issues by using the Bible as a way not to face them. The Table is for us as Men.
  5. The Table is your Prayer Fortress! You can put any and all prayer needs on the Table because it is safe and secure.

Please read through the Champion’s Table Guidelines and pray about this for yourself. We love you and this ministry is striving to honor God best by serving you as His Servant. Press onward as Champions!

Your Servants,

Paul and Linda Pickern

Note: We invite you to become a part of connecting 1,000,000 Pastors by 2020 through Champion’s Tables of trust, love, encouragement and accountability. We need your prayers. There is NO Cost or Fees required by Pastors to join or start a Table. All-Pro Pastors is completely funded by donations of Individuals, Christian Companies, Pastors and Churches who want to see Pastors encouraged and strengthened. Participation in any way helps this ministry reach more Pastors and provides for on-going daily and weekly encouragement, national and international travel, radio and television, breakfasts-luncheons and dinners, pastor conferences, pastor retreats, website support and encouragement, e-mail messaging, other events and critical personal pastoral care.

Testimonials

Pastor WF Floyd, USA

Out of obedience to God, my wife and I relocated to Florida for ministry after retirement. We had been in ministry over twenty years in Los Angeles, was ordained and worked alongside of many wonderful gifted men and women of God.

We worked tirelessly together promoting and developing ministries and events for growth while establishing very few meaningful relationships outside of church.

Ministry has been and will always be the motivating force for our lives but the road is often lonely. Although we had no clue of what God had in store for us we dared to believe and trust that He was leading and guiding our footsteps.

Prior to our move I prayed that God would send me a few friends I could confide in on this journey. Within less than a year my wife and I was invited to a APP luncheon. We were introduced to Paul and Linda and began a true friendship that later evolved into assisting them in this ministry.

APP has broadened our understanding and has deepened our compassion for pastors and their wives who are also in need of ministry.

After all of their studies, teachings, preaching, counseling, giving so much of their time, energy and themselves, they are so often left with no one to turn to other than each other, in some cases no one at all.

We are men of God, Yes! That is true. But we are first men who constantly pour into the live of others and require someone to pour back into ours which is what APP has done for me.

APP has also allowed me to connect with phenomenal men of God each week who are a part of my Champions Table and powerful men and women in ministry.

But more importantly it has allowed me to grow even greater in ministry with my family and the love of my life, my wife Pauletta.

God has answered my prayer through APP Ministries.
