PODCAST RECAST – Healthy Pastors Lead Healthy Churches And What That Looks Like For You (w/ Marty Sawyers) – Episode 144

The original release of Podcast 117 w/ Marty Sawyers was so well received that we decided to release it again as the end of summer 2022 nears. We hope you enjoy today’s PODCAST RECAST.

At Full Strength Network, Marty Sawyers and his team believe that healthy pastors lead healthy churches, and healthy churches change the world. That’s why they’ve gathered a national network of providers who are passionate about helping pastors and their families stay on the road to mental, spiritual, and financial well-being.

We all know how important it is to take care of yourself. They say that when an airplane is going down, if you don’t put your safety mask on first, then you can’t help anyone else. This is especially true for ministers and their families.

Today, we’re talking to Marty about why pastors need counseling in every season of life, whether dealing with trauma or simply maintaining healthy habits. We’ll also talk about how Full Strength Network can help pastors and their families receive counseling, financial coaching, and well-being resources in an affordable, safe, and anonymous way.

Take a few minutes to listen. I know you’ll be encouraged!

Key Takeaways

1) Counseling can look like a lot of different things. You don’t have to be dealing with “Big T” trauma to be involved in counseling. You might feel at your best right now or have smaller issues you’d like to talk through. It’s never a bad idea to seek wise counsel, no matter what season you’re experiencing.

2) Pastors, ministers, and their families are often expected to be perfect. Many pastors and the people closest to them feel like they can’t admit that they need help. There’s a stigma (which Marty says is going away, but not fast enough) that a pastor should be devoid of personal issues.

3) The church was designed as a team sport. The church is meant to have many leaders and disciples, not just one person carrying all the weight. There must be a system of equipping other people to use their own gifts.

4) You are loved. You are supported. You don’t have to do this alone. We’re here for you. We want to see a world full of church leaders who are healthy in every aspect, and that starts with you taking the next step. Reach out to Full Strength Network and to us so we can partner with you on your ministry journey.
