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!!!!

Day of Play 2012 A Perfect Day!

We praise God for giving us a sunny blue sky day last Saturday June 9th for our Central Florida 3rd Annual Day of Play at Schalamar Creek Golf Club in Lakeland Florida. We had a full field of Pastors and wives play in a Scramble format with -17 as the winning score. Many wives and other women in ministry spent the day in the huge BallRoom enjoying games, crafts, cooking demonstrations, dress for Success and much more. We had 7 golfers putt in a putt-off for a chance to putt for $5000. Jimmy Pearce won the putt-off but missed the putt. Visiting Pastor Ariel B. from Cuba had the chance to try a hole in one drive for 1 Million Dollars. It was his first time ever playing golf. No one was surprised that his ball missed the mark but all were thrilled that he won the chance to try.

It was a wonderful day of fun and laughter. This event was sponsored by many fine businesses and friends. (Keep an eye out for a new sponsorship page coming soon to this website) Schalamar Creek Golf Club has been a great host for the past three years and we hope to have many more Golf events there for years to come. Golf Pro Tom Wheary and his team are the absolute best! Grandpa Johnsons Barbeque from nearby Plant City provided the lunch for the third year in a row and it was a big hit! Peter Frantzis , UBS Investment business Owner and Randy Knapp, Owner of RLK Development were again our Platinum Sponsors!

We cannot express our thanks enough to everyone who made this FREE event for Pastors and Wives possible. Thank You!!!!

This event has a long list of planning team members who spent 3 months preparing to make this a tremendous day. Thank you, Travis-chairman, Sam and Linda,”H” and Rhonda, Ed, Jesse and Brenda, Chad, and John J for your faithfulness and love for our Pastors/Wives. All Pro Pastors ministry is blessed to have you lead the way each year to make this so successful!

Another thank you for the special presentation by Keith Goodson-America’s number one Christian Artist’s. Keith Painted 2 paintings to bless this event and make it unique. His paintings of Jesus are magnificent!

Pastors we are honored to serve you and we are committed to pray for you and encourage you to stay the course, fight the good fight and don’t forget to stop regularly to laugh, rest, play and just get away to have some fun.

We Love You!

"Day Of Play" Fabulous!!!

Around 100 pastors and wives and others in ministry took part in the ‘All Pro Pastors “Day of Play” last Saturday June 18th! It was a true day of play and relaxation. Praise God !!!! We pray that everyone had a fun filled day with lots of laughs. The Golf tournament was full of excitment and many new friendships. One pastor tried for a Million Dollars hole in one. The ladies had a fabulous time getting acquainted while playing games and building houses. (See Facebook)

We want to thank all our friends who helped to make this a great event. Pastors are often left behind but Saturday they were not forgotten!!!!

We want to thank our many event sponsors who made this a tremendous day!!! We especially thank Randy Knapp who started this event last year by offering Schalamar Creek in Lakeland to All Pro Pastors as a place to host and treat our Pastors! We want to extend a special thankyou to Paul Frantzis of Merrill Lynch for being our Platinum Sponsor Plus this year!!! Also, Thank you Tom Wheary PGA Pro and extraordinary host who has a crew second to none!

The planning commitee was a gift from God. Travis, Sam, “H”, and Terry led a super group of Christian  business leaders and others who want to see Pastors encouraged and strengthened. Linda and I are so very blessed by these faithful men and women who love Pastors! Thank you again, we love you!!!

Thank you Pastors for coming out. We love you and pray that you will continue to be blessed, and please make it a point to take time to laugh every day and have a little fun. You will live longer and better!

Testimonials

Nan Ellis, Tampa USA (Pastor Wife) 2012

Nan Ellis (Tampa)
My husband Beetle has been a part of a Champions Table for about two years now. I can not say enough about All Pro Pastors because it has changed our lives. Beetle came out of an environment where it was gangs and high profile gangsters.

When he got saved he still had some rough edges he needed help with. God did a lot in his life using All Pro Pastors to play a major part in it. The rough edges has been chipped away and it has saved our marriage and our ministry.

My husband build a strong relationship with the men in his Champions Table who has been there for him in hard times as well as the good times.

Linda Pickern is such a women of God and I can’t say enough about her. There has been times when I was having a real rough time and she would send a text which was exactly what I needed from the Lord right then for my life, saved me in the hardest times.

Thank You All Pro Pastors for being there for us.
