|Welcome to Pastor-in-Residence

"Where does a servant of God turn for help when the issues are pastoral burnout, a minister's struggles with identity, tensions in a church that escalate to pastoral self-doubts about calling and/or spousal strains that become sustained warfare? Pastor-in-Residence Ministries was created to provide a supportive atmosphere and a helping hand in facing those issues. It offers grace without strings and points to a compassionate Christ."

"For many years now I have been familiar with Charles Wickman's passion to help pastors who, for one reason or another, are being ripped apart by being forced to leave ministry. The Pastor-in-Residence concept that Charles has developed is a compassionate response to a very deep need. Christian leaders separated from an opportunity for ministry often feel isolated and abandoned. They are literally the walking wounded who then get wounded again by insensitive churches and the very community that they seek to serve. I cannot think of any ministry more needful today and worthy of our total support the ministry to such pastors and Christian leaders."
