I am excited to introduce you to me and our ministry. I have served as a pastor for about twenty years in three different ministries. Most of that time, I served as a Lead Pastor in the same church. I am intimately familiar with the challenges of leading a ministry, both the personal challenges and the ministry challenges. Ministry is difficult. Doing ministry alone…..is more difficult. Even with the appropriate education, ( I have an M.Div) you can feel swallowed up by the challenges of serving as a man in the ministry. Seminary alone cannot prepare us adequately for the journey we are on. It is my desire that Develop My Ministry serves as a brotherhood for men battling in the work God has called us to. We want to be a ministry that equips and encourages the pastor in his walk and in his work.
It has been one of my greatest blessings to work with men as they lead the church to accomplish the mission of making disciples. Through these relationships, I have seen pastors grow in their personal lives and I have seen their ministries flourish. I believe that equipping the pastor in his walk and in his work can have the single greatest impact on the success of a church. As a certified church consultant in revitalization and transitional leadership, I work with pastors to identify their greatest challenges and propose action steps to move forward. If I can help you or your ministry with consulting or coaching please contact me. Ryan@DevelopMyMinistry.org
