Nobody ever said it would be easy to be a pastor, but you didn't expect it to be this hard. The financial pressures, the difficult relationships, all the burdens you carry for others—not to mention the guilt you feel about not doing more or being a better man. It has begun to weigh on your ministry, your marriage, and sometimes even your mental health.

Let us help you re-center your life and your ministry around prayer. Spouses and church leaders welcome.

What People Are Saying

“The conference is an incredible balance of engaging interactions, insightful teaching on prayer, and encouragement that we have a Father who delights to hear the prayers of his children. Highly recommend!”

“Good balance of theology with practical steps; encouraging, not guilt inducing; helps you see prayer in a different light that frees you up for growth in this area.”

Karl Heath, New Life Presbyterian, Philadelphia, PA

"It gave me a new vision, new glasses to see life. This is a way to make God real—from fiction to relationship, from theory to life."
