Testimonials

Pastor Tom Ratemo (Kitengela, Kenya) 2012

Pastor Tom (Kitengela, Kenya) 2012
I want to thank Paul for bringing the Champions Table to Kenya to bless us. I thank God because when we come together we started seeing changes in our lives. Issues come out when we are at our Champions Table and we thank God for that.

We thank God that through the servant Paul Pickern and the people who are helping to support All Pro Pastors, continue because it does not change just one person but it changes many people. I encourage whoever is not a part of a Champions Table to just come in.

This is a way that you can get out of you what is making you not to talk as a man or woman of God. The conference was great and I thank God and I salute the entire team from America. May God bless you.

I believe that now we will grow because we can talk at the Champions Table.

May God Bless You.

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.

Pastor Dwight Edwards, Winter Haven, USA (April 2012)

Pastor Dwight Edwards (Winter Haven)
Hello, It is great to be alive. I don’t know how many friends you have but I can count my close ones on one hand. Over the last year and a half I have developed some friendships with some specials guys that is a part of my Champions Table.

We meet every Wednesday and come from four different backgrounds, Lutheran, Baptist, Non Denomination and I am Assembly of God. I am seventy three years old and need friends. I need someone I can talk to, to count on if I need help, to pray with, support me
and for me to be accountable to.

Yes I do need to be accountable and so do you. I know that you are accountable to God but it would be great if you had someone you could confide in, with other guys. So I encourage you to be a part of an All Pro Pastors Champion Table.

If you really want to be a champion for Christ you really need to be a part of other people lives and let them be involved in yours. You will be blessed beyond what you can imaging.

Developing relationships, you will be glad you did.

God Bless You.

Pastor Bill and Kathleen Cody, Lakeland Florida USA

Pastor Bill Cody (Lakeland)
I am so grateful to God to be a part of a champions Table. My table has made a great impact on not only my life but in the other lives of the brother that meet together. I know it has spilled over into our family life and has impacted our church life. I am so grateful and encourage you to be a part of a champions Table, you will be blessed.

Minister Cathleen Cody
If your husband is not a part of a Champions Table encourage him to do so.

Pastor Olutunji and Anne Tom-Wright

Pastor Tom Wright (Tampa) By being a part of the All Pro Pastors Table it has been awesome, it has been wonderful. I have become the father I am suppose to be for my children and the husband I am suppose to be for my wife.

The All Pro Pastors Table has opened my eyes to a lot of things. I take walks with my wife in the mornings and we exercise together. I love her more now and I have learned thing I did not know.

So I encourage you to be a part of an All Pro Pastors Table. Just Come!

Minister Ann Wright (Tampa)
All Pro Pastors is a great group because I can see the changes in my husband right now. I pray for him and the Champions Table teaches them to love their home and to love their family. The Bible makes us to understand that family is the first church.

So I pray that God will continue to bless All Pro Pastors and encourage them. And
continue to lift our husbands higher.

Bishop Peter Simwa, Africa

In 2012 All Pro Pastors was introduced to me by Pastor Moses Brown from Tampa Florida when he came to our church in Eldoret, Kenya for a Conference. I became excited about the Champions Table and started one with three other Pastors and have since started over 20 more in our Region. We later in 2012 invited All Pro Pastors Executive Director Paul Pickern bring a ministry team of All Pro Pastors; Pastor Nolan Edwards, Dr. Richard Mull, Bishop Willie Bolden and Pastor Simon Njenga come to Eldoret and do a two day Pastors conference.  It was a very powerful time and brought many pastors together to start relationships.

The Champions Table has been wonderful for me to build closer fellowship and trust with other pastors who share the same struggles I do. I am a better husband, father and pastor because of Champions Table.
I believe it is changing Kenya by bringing pastors together from other tribes and breaking all barriers of division down. It is bringing strength to the Kingdom of God and to me as a man and leader.
I recommend All Pro Pastors and Champions Table to all pastors.
We love all pro pastors.
Bishop Peter Simwa, Eldoret, Kenya, Africa

Pastor Robert Stone, Fellowship Baptist Church

I have been in a Champions Table for 3-4 years. I knew I needed something to change in my life, and I found it at the Champions Table. I found three brothers who cared for me and had my back when my life was up or down. They hold me in check so my life can be all it can be for God. They have helped me to be a better husband and a better pastor for my people.God has blessed me through these men and my life is more richer; thanks to them. I don’t know what I would have done without them and I thank God for them in my life.

Robert Stone, Florida

Pastor Randy Humphrey, January 2008

It is currently Tuesday morning, 5;30 am, and I’m not feeling very well. Sounds like a perfect reason not to make my Tuesday morning All Pro Pastor “Champion Table” at the local IHOP. Well, I can’t stay away. Now I am all dressed and ready to go. Why you may ask, well it is not because I have to; it is because I need to. My All Pro Pastors Table has become a lifeline. An Accountability group that started with the focus being on our marriages and roles as husbands and has now become a support group for life as a pastor. Not a day goes by that I don’t consider what I must be doing to be a Godly husband. The initial accountability portion of the Table has become ingrained in my being. and now the group is a place where I can share, I can receive prayer, and I can explore this ministry journey with brothers that are walking the walk. A week without All Pro Pastors feels like a week incomplete.

Pastor Randy Humphrey, HopeWeaver Community Church, Florida

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.

How to Start a Champion’s Table

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 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. 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. Keep it friendly and personable. (i.e. Dr., Bishop, Pastor, etc.)
  • Agree to pray for one another each day!

Getting Started

  • The first week 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.
  • Be sure to Register 

Keep it Simple and Intentional

  • Start each Table time with Prayer. Each person share’s their prayer needs at the beginning of your Table time. This is critical and will set the dynamics of the Table.
  • Each week ask, “Does anyone need Special Table Time?” This is current pressing issues of high importance/concern/ or frustration!
  • Each week identify a specific goal or accomplishment that you hope to attain during the next week and ask everyone to pray for you to be successful and to ask about it the next week when you meet again.
  • 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.
  • The Table becomes your “prayer fortress”. The Table is a safe place to share your most inward struggles and spiritual battles. Your Table brothers become like Aaron and Hur holding your arms up while your Joshua does battle for you and sometimes you have to hold their arms up. Prayer is the foundation of a great Champions Table!
  • Your Table is there to encourage you, cheer you on, pray for you, not judge or give unrequested advice.

NOTE: Men only meet with Men!

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. ?
    • How did I handle flirtatious or lustful attitudes, tempting thoughts, wandering eyes or 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.

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

 

About All Pro Pastors

Mission Statement

The purpose of our ministry is to empower Pastors to become Champion role models for all people through personal encouragement, challenge, accountability and achievement, and to bring unity to the “Body of Christ” through love, trust, prayer and personal relationships, that by this our Lord Jesus may say: “well done my good and faithful Servant”.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to see the Body of Christ joined together through a Covenant of Prayer that brings all denominations, cultures, races and pastors together in action, and that pastors have relationship between themselves of trust, love and determination to save their community and make disciples for Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God!

Did 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)

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

The Jesus Model

Jesus RejectedIt 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. In 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!

peter simwa and friendsFor 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
