Pastors are people also! We struggle with all of the same issues of life that the sheep face plus we have the responsibility of the church. If we enter into the suffering and needs of others as biblical shepherds should, we can easily get a “double dose” of the pressures of the world.

From time to time every pastor needs someone to help sort out the problems, disappointments, hurts and challenges of both personal life and ministry. The model of biblical counseling offered by GEM is a grace centered approach that reinforces the pastor’s identity in–and identification–with Jesus Christ, and then seeks to address the unbiblical thoughts and practices that are the root of emotional, spiritual and relational conflicts. Counseling is provided on a love offering bases.
