At REACH, we understand that life can be filled with challenges, and sometimes, we all need guiding light to navigate through them. Likewise, as pastors and ministers, they do face their own set of unique stressors and challenges. Care for Pastors aims to bridge the gap by providing professional counselling to church pastors to lend an empathetic ear and a helping hand.
Care for Pastors Programme provides professional counselling services to church pastors who are facing a range of emotional, psychological, spiritual and ministry issues that might impact their well-being and their ability to lead. These challenges include personal and relational issues, ethical dilemmas, burnout and a wide range of mental health issues. Our focus is to foster a culture of understanding, compassion and self-care within the church community.
