“How to Heal the Body”

As Pastors we often separate ourselves from having TRUST for anyone! WE put ourselves on an island guarded by a moat of hungry sheep! Sometimes our spouse and family are farther away than the sheep. The enemies SATAN and FLESH has caused many to buy into a culture of division! Pastors compete with each other so often while our enemies wreak havoc! Please continue. 

 

In America there are more than 250 Denominations recognized by the IRS(The World has many thousands). Throughout the “Church” in America the differences of Denomination, Doctrine, Race, Culture and Social Status has caused great division. According to the many Pastors as a group and particularly within the same denomination do not Trust one another. Sadly the Body and “Pastors” also still struggle with Racial Prejudice and Segregation. As Pastors we are taught how to build a “Castle”, more commonly called the Local Church.

IMG_3034.JPGThe Simple Solution:

Diligently Strive to Transform our Differences into Wholeness in the Body! (One Body with many parts working together to grow the Kingdom) Develop a “Kingdom Culture”! This is the culture when Pastors in a community agree to attack the enemy as one Army and one Body in love, trust and power! It is the mindset of bringing the Lost to the Kingdom and allowing the Holy Spirit to direct them to the right “Church Fellowship”. Pastors Need each other! We must find Pastors to establish True Relationships of Trust, Accountability and Encouragement across all barriers and walls. We suggest that every Pastor make a commitment to find Three other Pastors-different denomination, race, and culture “if possible” and meet with them EVERY WEEK for about 1-2 hours to talk as real men about real issues.                                                                                                                                    20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. 1 John 4:20 NAS

The Results: The Body is quickly Healed! More lost will be brought into the Kingdom of God. Communities will see what being “Christian” really means. Your “Church Fellowship” will benefit because you get refreshed and re-fired every week. Many Pastors say that their “Messages” become more powerful. Your Wife will be Thrilled because she will be spending more time with her Husband and not her Pastor. You will develop trusted friendships to share things that only another Pastor can understand. You will finally have a place to unload without fear of betrayal. You will personally grow because you have embraced accountability. You will learn more about the “Body”…… a lot more! As we build these Friendships with Trust and Encouraging Accountability the Body also comes together and is held tightly together by this bonding also! The community will become shaken. When Pastor’s come together publicly and regularly in love and relationship it overflows to congregations and communities. Note: Pastor’s Marriages, Ministries, and Lives have been saved by starting these weekly Champion Tables! (Just ask Me)

Am I a “Man of God”?

Recently at one of our lunches the guest speaker used the term “Man of God” as he was telling a story about someone. Immediately the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “Man of God is what you and every man should be striving to be called”. When people see you they should think of you as a “Man of God” before anything else!

The “Holy Spirit” further went on to say that being a Pastor is a position, but being a “Man of God” is a description of who you really are. It describes your character and testifies of who you are on the inside.  Many of us work hard to earn degrees and attain many great titles and this can be well and good, however Holy Spirit said to me the most important title (if we can call it that) is “Man of God”.   Who are you, really? Who am I? Does our title tell the world who we really are? I have been called many things: Pastor, Dr., Bishop, Apostle, Executive Director, Reverend, etc. some of these are not accurate about me and others were spoken just for respect, but none of these are true reflections of who I am as a follower and servant of Jesus!

Did my wife marry a Pastor or a man? She married a “Man”. She is more interested in me being a man seeking God with my whole heart and mind than she is that I may be a Pastor or Minister. Who we are is much more important than what we do as a calling or position. How important is it to our church families and fellowships to know that they can trust and count on us as men of integrity and godly character?   Our positions can change and be forgotten our relationships are what is remembered and has the longest lasting impact.

Now for the kicker. When we truly are a “Man of God” all of these things mentioned become easier to do and with lasting affect! Being a Pastor is easy when you know that you are walking in the Power and Wisdom of the Holy Spirit. Being a husband and Father is much easier when your wife sincerely sees you as a Man of God! Being a leader of a ministry or business breeds much success because people want to be led by great “Men of God”!

Now the question remains, am I a “Man of God”? Are you a “Man of God”? What are we going to do about this?

I pray that this will make us think about how people really see us, starting at home. As you meet with your Champions Table this week discuss the importance of why it is critically important that as Pastors and Ministers that all people see you as a “Man of God”

We are praying for you!!

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.

What a Great Year You have Had!

Have you taken the time to write down all the events, activities, ministry opportunities, acts of kindness, etc  that you have gone to or been a part of this year? Let me suggest that you start a list right away. You will be amazed at how much that could be. Include everything. Men often volunteer to coach or help in sports. Some are Deacons or Elders. Pastors, you preach 2-3 times a week or more. Women go to conferences, help at nursing homes, many lead youth activities, visit hospitals, teach Sunday School, etc. How much travel have you done? Special times with your spouse. How about date nights!!!! You might be surprised how much you did. Write it all!

You probably have had a fabulous year and didn’t realize it. Today so many people talk about only troubles, problems and bad news. When we add up the good it far outweighs the bad! Take a minute and start a list right now and see for yourself what a great year you have had!

slide-faithfulness

P.S. This week we started writing down all of the many things All Pro Pastors Ministry as well as Linda and myself have been a part of. As we started writing the list got longer and longer. When we took a break we were amazed at just how much we were a part of. In fact as of this writing December 20th the list is still growing. Sometime in the next few days we will be putting our year end newsletter together that will highlight some of these. Hope you will take the time to read it.

We are praying for you!

“God Day” Celebration in Orlando Florida Introduced to the World!

Throughout the world there are many one day special celebrations set aside from Presidents Day to Secretaries Day, from Mothers Day to Fathers Day. The list is countless. We are excited that Pastor Joshua Fowler and a team of visionary Pastors and Christian Leaders in Central Florida have been charged by God to start a “God Day” celebration! You may ask, why “God Day”, isn’t every Sunday supposed to be God’s Day? Yes it is, however this “God Day” is a time of bringing unity to the Kingdom Body by demonstrating God’s love.

It stands out as a “Day” for pastors to show everyone in Orlando, Central Florida and the World what can happen when the Body of Christ (the church) works together. This very special day is bringing pastors and churches together to touch their community by putting thousands of shoes on children who are in need. It also is a day of new beginnings, new beginnings of friendship and care that touches these little ones as Jesus tells us to do. Different denominations, races and cultures have come together to minister to the children in Orlando Florida, many of whom have never owned a brand new pair of shoes. A New pair of shoes will be placed on each child’s feet by a local Pastor or Christian volunteer.

We pray that this will be a huge success and Orlando embraces the opportunity to recognize and celebrate our creator and lord, Jesus Christ!

Pastors we applaud you and your obedience to the Holy Spirit who put this on your hearts. Please take this opportunity to embrace one another as God’s leaders and Ambassadors publicly and wholeheartedly and let this unity continue through each and every day.

We are praying for you and that many lost families will be brought to know Jesus and receive His everlasting love!

The “God Day” celebration is officially on December 12th starting with a “Declaration” from 6:00 PM- 9:00 PM.  Followed by a Global Awakening Ministers Congress on Friday the 13th from 9:00 AM-9:00 PM  and Saturday December 14th is the big shoe distribution, a  United Demonstration of The Father’s Love!

Thank You Pastor!

Thank you Pastor for loving me when I am unlovable. Thank you Pastor for listening when no-one else will. Thank you Pastor for coming to my side at 3:00 AM when I was at my worst. Thank You Pastor for preaching God’s Word without compromise. Thank you Pastor for being a “Man of God” worthy to be followed. Thank you Pastor for picking me up every time I fall. Thank you Pastor for showing me how to love my wife. Thank you Pastor for feeding my family when we have no money. Thank you Pastor for teaching our church how to love one another. Thank you Pastor for teaching me to lead. Thank you Pastor for renewing my vision. Thank you Pastor for giving me hope. Thank you Pastor for encouraging me when you never knew how much it was needed. Thank you Pastor for teaching me how to love my children God’s way! Thank you Pastor for for not quitting when our church gave you a hard time. Thank you most of all for telling us about Jesus and His never-ending Love!

Pastors everywhere,  thank you for working 24/7  tirelessly, always giving, always smiling, always faithful, always strong!

You are our Champion for Jesus!

We love you!

A Champion Pastor from Nigeria Testifies

The Champions Table is a place that Pastors can be encouraged and feel safe. As Pastors we feel the same challenges and issues that all men have. The family can easily become left behind with the demands of a church. A marriage can quickly become damaged and broken by the bites of sheep and and goats. It is critically important that the Pastor’s family be encouraged. The Champions Table gives us the support and accountability that we need to be great Husbands and Fathers. Our wounds can be anointed and our spirit lifted.

Pastor Tom Wright and Ann have come to the USA from Nigeria to Pastor and lead. Listen closely to their short testimony.

We believe every Pastor needs a place to unload their burdens each week and be refilled and refreshed.

Become a Champion today. Start a Champions Table!

How to Become a Champion Pastor!

Are you kidding me? First you say “All Pro Pastor” and now you say “Champion”. What’s the catch? Here it is. Every Pastor is an All Pro or should be as God’s Messenger and assigned Shepherd, but not all are “Champions”. We must strive to be Champions every day….. and it starts with the Man! As Pastors we are taught many “how to’s” regarding the Church. There are countless support structures and teachings on every conceivable issue, but when it comes to the person called Pastor, it can become very lonely. The Champion Pastor is proactive in doing any and everything to be the Man, God created him to be so that he can be the Pastor he was called to be!

It is the Man part of us where the enemy hits us, our family, our marriage, our mind, our work, our ego and pride, our attitude, our honesty, our finances, our secret struggles, Pastor you know exactly what I am talking about. It is all of us who are called Pastor who are attacked in these areas. Many Pastor tendencies are to keep everything bottled up inside and give the appearance of being indestructible. We isolate ourselves internally and put our feelings, emotions and trust on the “Island of Aloneness”.  Most would say, I am surrounded by people, have a family I love and a wife I adore, yet I catch myself with no-one to trust and no-one to talk too. Who can I trust Lord? Is their anyone I can talk to and feel safe??

Pastor, the answer is Yes. God gave us a very powerful and effective solution to defeating this “aloneness”! We have started something called “Champion Tables”. These Tables are made up of four Pastors who meet for about 1-2 hours each week to talk as MEN. Much like Jesus with Peter, James, and John he spent Time with them. At the Table we have time to build real relationships and genuine trust. It becomes our SAFE place. Only another Pastor can understand another Pastor and these Tables are making huge impacts on the Pastors who have started them. Pastors DO NOT look at this as “another meeting” but as a their “Weekly Vacation“. It is a time of refreshing and recharge. Sometimes an unload and reload.

It is this “Weekly Vacation” at the Table that helps us to be that Man of God my wife and children need. It is the Table that gives Pastors encouraging accountability to stay strong and move to the next level. It is the Table that instills a Kingdom Culture because my Pastor brothers lift my arms up when I am in battle and pick me up when no one else knows I have slipped.

The Champions Table is for every Pastor. It is where Champions are made, marriages are strengthened and ministries and energized.

Pastor, It Is So Easy!

Pastors never need a day to rest, right. Being a Pastor or a Pastor’s wife is so easy, you just work on Sunday and go out to eat with people to talk. No one bothers you or criticizes you, never complains or calls you out at 2:00AM. You are expected to survive on as little as possible and never drive the finest cars. The Pastor must never make a mistake and have perfect kids. The Pastor’s wife must either be a great singer or play a keyboard and surely be at all the women’s prayer groups. The Pastor never grows weary and never ever gets grumpy!

As you know this is what many people believe and sadly drive Pastors to give up. Pastor please stay the course and let us encourage you! You are not alone.

We at All Pro Pastors are prepared to share with your congregation how to treat their Pastor and family! Some congregations need to know what the Shepherd’s responsibilities are and equally important what the Sheep’s responsibilities are, according to God’s Word! We are prepared to help you meet other Pastors to develop relationships. We are prepared to connect you to Pastors who can relate to the struggles, challenges, heartaches and joys of being a Pastor.

Each week thousands of Pastors meet at Champion Tables throughout the world. These Tables give us a place to go and pour ourselves out in complete confidentiallity and trust. It is a place of refreshing and refilling. It is also a place to laugh out loud and cry when needed.

Pastor we are just like you. Men who have given their lives to serve our Lord Jesus and to bring people to His saving Grace and Comforting Love!  It is what we signed on for when we said yes to His “Call!” As men, sometimes we fall, we fail, we mess up and we feel inadequate and except for His Grace, Protection and Holy Spirit we would quit!

Praise God we do not have to walk in despair, defeat and rejection. As Men of God we can(and should) walk in Power, Victory and Success! This does not mean to say we do not need encouragers and friends. Moses had Aaron, Hur and Joshua and even Jesus had Peter, James and John. We all need brothers to pick us up when we fall, counsel us when we are faced with tough decisions, push us when we are ready to quit, hold our arms up when we are in the heat of battle.

And Pastor, you need to be the best husband and father in your fellowship. Men need to see a man who outwardly demonstrates love to his wife and children. We need to pray daily with our wife in unity and harmony. Our children should know that our family comes before all others including the “Church”. This is part of our instructions from God. The Champion Table constantly challenges me to be a living example not just a mouthpiece for God!

Pastor you are anointed to carry the battle to the enemy! Let us encourage you walk in strength and holiness, in power and victory, boldness and humility and with love and mercy. Do not wait for the enemy to attack! Take the battle to him. Share the gospel of Jesus daily, pray with people everywhere you go, pray for those as the Spirit guides, and smile smile smile.

Pastor we are praying for you!!!!

David Gibbs III Hits a Home Run or “Nerve” of Many Pastors

July 25th at the Pastors Power Luncheon Attorney David Gibbs and Pastor Fred Harrold both gave resounding messages. Pastor Fred reviewed many of the issues Pastors face with congregations that can be very demoralizing, however he gave a solution for many to consider, “The Champion Table”. To see this compelling presentation go to our video gallery.

Attorney Gibbs talked squarely to Pastors about real legal issues that can not only create great distress for a church/pastor but could possibly destroy a church. Churches today must be aware of the many satanic attacks that are taking place each day across America within churches. I did say within! Church membership is not something to take lightly these days. Please go to our video gallery and take the time to watch Attorney Gibbs powerful and informative message. Every Pastor and committed Christian leader should watch this!

We are thankful for Attorney Gibbs and Pastor Fred for giving their time to Pastors for this tremendous luncheon. We want to also thank Plant City Church of God for hosting and providing a delicious meal!

If you were unable to attend this luncheon please join us on September 26th at Church at the Mall in Lakeland, Florida to see and hear Attorney Gibbs III. (see events for details)

Pastors Power Luncheon Just Days Away

July 25th is a big day in Plant City Florida! Attorney David Gibbs III (National Center for Life and Liberty) will be sharing about the ways Pastors and Churches have to protect themselves in the United States. Yes that is correct, protecting themselves in the USA. Today the US Government appears to be targeting Churches, Christians and Pastors as potential problems. Attorney Gibbs will be sorting this out and explaining where the need for awareness is and what we can do.

We say this not to be alarmists but to be educators of how the enemy is using anyone and everyone he can to cause disruption and division in the Christian world. Do not be afraid, for this is exactly what satan wants. Be diligent and faithful by being prepared.

We invite all pastors to try and make this powerful luncheon. Go to our events page for details and to register.

Pastors Defeating Predjudice

Where every time you turn around predjudice seems to raise its ugly head we would like to announce that many Pastors who have started Champion Tables are breaking these generational attitudes! Pastors of all races, denominations and tribes are meeting each week in groups of (4) for relationship and trust building. These Champion Table Pastors are producing Kingdom Champions and Leaders who are linking arms to destroy the enemy strongholds in their communities!

In Valrico, Florida one Table has brought Southern Baptist, Assembly of God, Seventh Day Adventist and a Messianic Rabbi together to meet every week. In Eldoret, Kenya many Tribal Pastors are now becoming best of friends because of weekly encouraging and holding each other to serious accountabilty.

When people see Pastors loving one another, liking one another and publicly fellowshipping and having fun, the curse of predjudice suffers a huge blow. When Pastors in every city in America follows suit, America will change! Praise God many are!

Pastor, what about you?

How to Start a Champions Table

  • Find 3 other Pastors (men with men) who you will agree to meet with every week. These may be Pastors who you are not acquainted with and need to seek out or they may be friends you already know? (If there is a church near your church consider going over to meet the other pastor if you have not. Take time to visit and get acquainted and then ask him to start or join you in your Champions Table. Repeat this until you have 4 in your Table. No more than 4)
  • 4 total is best, the “Jesus Model”, but you may have to start with less
  • Establish a place and time to meet (weekly) that works for all.
  • You should use first names and avoid titles. (i.e. Dr., Bishop, Pastor, etc.)

Get Acquainted, Listen and Talk

  • The first couple of weeks is a time of introduction.  Share about your family, What are things you enjoy doing with your wife/children, What are activities you enjoy, where have you lived, when and where did you commit your life to Jesus? (Tell your story), What makes you laugh, cry, angry, shout, sing? etc.   Just get acquainted with one another. Find something to laugh about! What is your biggest challenge? Share about YOU! Listen intently to each other!
  • Review the “Table Covenant“- Click on it to download.
  • Each Champions Table should have someone volunteer to be the Table Champion. This is a commitment to contact each Table member the day before your meeting as a reminder and to keep the Table focused

Awareness and Sensitivity

  • Each week ask, “Does anyone need Table Time?” This is current pressing issues of high importance/concern/ or frustration!
  • Do not talk so much that others do not have a chance.
  • Talking about “our church” will come naturally, but  do not allow your Table to get stuck on church related issues.

Discuss Table and Personal Objectives

  • Share with the Table any current goals that you feel comfortable sharing. (Marriage, Family, Church, Physical, Household, Personal Improvement, Spiritual Growth, Business, Financial, Health, Education, Ministry, etc.)
  • Share any Personal areas of Improvement that you want to be encouraged to achieve. (These are also Prayer Requests)
  • You may write these down and/or write the other Table Brothers goals down too.
  • Your Table is there to encourage you, cheer you on, pray for you, not judge or give unrequested advice.

Very Important: Do not seek out financial help from a Table Brother. They will know your needs and help you IF God directs them

   Suggested Discussion Points”

    • Have I spent enough time in personal prayer this week? (What would God say?)
    • Have I spent enough personal time in God’s word? (Not preparing for Sermons)
    • Did my faith waiver any this week and if so how did I struggle; fear, doubt, temptation, judgement, etc. ?
    • Have I had any flirtatious or lustful attitudes, tempting thoughts, wandering eyes or exposed myself to any explicit materials (TV, Internet, Mag. Etc) which would not glorify God?
    • Did anyone in/from my church tempt me (wandering eyes) or approach me in an inappropriate manner?  What did I do?
    • Have I been completely above reproach in my financial dealings? Have I been honest with my wife about my spending?
    • Have I treated my body as God’s Temple? In my(Eating, Morality, Exercise, Purity/Holiness)
    • Have I prayed with my wife every day?
    • Have I treated my wife as “Jesus loves the Church”? (How much time, listening, helping, appreciating and encouraging her?)
    • Have I been a Man of God in ALL my dealings this week? What would God say?
    • You may want to make your own discussion points too.

                            ( Have I lied in any of my answers?)

    What am I going to do about it this week?

 Finish Strong!

  • Each week set personal and specific time sensitive goals. You may have one or several goals. Write them down and share with your Table. This becomes your personal “TO DO LIST”. Each week give a progress report.
  • This is not a requirement for the Table only a proven way to help you reach goals while building trust and real friendships!
  • Close out with serious Prayer!
  • The Table is not a Bible study group or prayer meeting you should be doing that already. However, prayer is vital and friendly discussions are encouraged. The bottom line is. The Champions Table is for Real Men getting serious about Real Men issues.
  • The Table becomes your prayer fortress

NOTE: Men only meet with Men!

 

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.

Global Vision

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.

The Jesus Model

It is every Christian’s desire to be like Jesus! Do you know there is one vital example that Jesus gave us that most men do not follow. We call it “The Jesus Model”!  This model can also be seen when studying the lives of Moses and Daniel.

If we are to be like Jesus, to imitate his life, then we must follow his example when it comes to developing deep trusted personal relationships with other men. Jesus With_His_Disciples002In the Book of Mark three times it is recorded that Jesus took Peter, James and John aside, leaving the other disciples out. When Jairus’ daughter is raised from the dead, when he took them to the transfiguration, and in the garden of Gethsemene when he was troubled and distressed before his crucifixion he called them to join him. Sometimes people refer to this group as Jesus’ inner circle. It would be fair to say that Jesus might very well have taken them aside many times that are not recorded in the Bible. These four men spent a lot of personal time together. Jesus knew what was about to happen when he went to pray that night in the garden. His human body was about to be broken beaten and utterly mutilated and he wanted his “buddies” his closest trusted friends with him in those final hours. It was these three, Peter, James, and John who he poured more of himself into than any others. He trusted them and he felt safe with them!

Moses also had a strong group of 3 men who he leaned on, Joshua, Hur and Aaron. Aaron and Hur held Moses arms up during the battle with the Amalekites while Joshua led the physical fight. Sometimes we need a couple of brothers to hold our arms up and to fight for us.

Daniel had Shadrack, Meshack and Abednigo as his inner circle or trusted accountability and encouragement brothers.

Having men to encourage us and hold us accountable is something every man needs. Jesus allowed himself to be accountable as a man with Peter, James and John. His willingness to take them into his sacred trust is a further demonstration of how important that it is for us to learn to trust! Jesus was well aware as “the Son of God” what was taking place at all times. Jesus was all man and all God and he wanted his friends with him when it counted. He personally set the standard that this is what I need and you need too!

For Pastors it is a very powerful message for our spouse, church family and leaders when they know we have accountability and a place to unload our burdens when distress and trouble hits us. As a Pastor we are also human, we have the needs of the flesh along with the battles of the flesh. Making the decision to follow Jesus’ example will give genuine relief and freedom.

Finding three men (Pastors) to link arms with will extend your life, improve your marriage, and strengthen your ministry. We call this group of four the Champion’s Table!

What is a Champions Table?

pic1 pic2 pic3

A Champions Table is a group of four local pastors(leaders) who meet together on a weekly basis for one to two hours to challenge each other, to encourage, to pray for one another and to help attain individual goals. To have a friend you must learn to be a friend. Champion Tables allow pastors to develop trusted friendships that are genuine.

As a pastor I have found it very difficult to trust anyone. I have many friends/acquaintances in my church and denomination, but these are people I would never expose my hurts or weaknesses to. There are times that I have questions and frankly I am embarrassed to ask anyone because of what they might think. Other times I get so frustrated I just want to quit, knowing I can’t it just stays inside of me like a sore that keeps festering.

Does this sound familiar? You may have other issues that only you know about. The Champion Table may be the place that over time you build deep rooted trust. The kind of trust that you can say anything and know your words and feelings are strictly confidential and secure . How refreshing to find a place where I can take my “Pastor Title” off and just be a man.

Testimonials

“I wanted to drop you a line to express my joy in our All Pro Pastors Champion Table. We have been meeting since May, 2007 now, and the intimacy level is really growing. We have seen barriers come down, and transparency taking place. Our four pastors have learned to lean on and count on one another. Hardly a week goes by that I don’t receive an email or phone call, giving or asking for encouragement. Every pastor needs a Table like ours.”

Fred Harrold, New life Community Church USA

 

“All Pro Pastors has helped me as a man, a husband and a Pastor. The impact of Champion Tables in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania is changing the Kingdom of God for all of Africa. My life will never be the same!”

Ambassador Peter Simwa, Higher Vision Center, Eldoret, Kenya

 

“Our All Pro Pastors Champion Table meets every Tuesday morning. I was at a point where I had decided not to add anything else to my weekly calendar. After a couple of weeks I discovered that the “Champion Table” was not your normal “meeting type” atmosphere as some would think.  It offered open discussion with like-minded people who share the same type of accomplishments, challenges, and needs.  We share the importance of honoring God as the husbands, fathers, and leaders in our homes.  I now look forward to Tuesday mornings as a priority.”

Kevin M. Wynne, FBC Durant USA
