All ministry happens with real people in real places. There is nothing more important we can do than to help local churches and their leaders become all of who God has created them to be. Advancing God’s Kingdom locally and globally requires churches that are healthy and missional; these churches require healthy and missional leaders.

Dave, Paul and Pablo are the team members giving leadership to Strengthen Churches. Some of the ways we live into this include:

Intensive Coaching for Pastors.

Paul and Dave love to coach. Together they are teaming up to coach three pastors at a time for a 24-hour period. Our hope is to bring clarity regarding leadership style and missional action. If you are a lead pastor interested in receiving this coaching, please contact kristine.gilmore@pswc.org.

10:24.

Each Tuesday Superintendent and team leader, Paul Wilson, brings us a short audio message in the spirit of Hebrews 10:24. The topics are broad-ranging from knowing God, to leading well, to personal health, to guidance navigating difficult situations. Text the word “ENCOURAGE” to 51400 to subscribe to the weekly text notifications.

Energize & Equip Events.

In 2015 we will host 10 regional Energize & Equip Events (EEE), on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.  The purpose is to strengthen resolve around the mission Jesus gave the church, and to encourage and equip local church leaders. PSWC and ECC leaders like Dave Olson, Jean Cheng Gorman, Pablo Anabalon, Rebecca Gonzalez and Paul Wilson will bring the best we have to offer.

Transition/Search Committee Coaching.

When a church is between pastors, it’s a critical juncture. Strong leadership during the transition and search process is vital for the church’s missional momentum going forward. The health of both the new lead pastor and the church receiving the pastor contribute toward an effective launch of a new season in ministry.
