Pastors Need Pastoring Too

So many times, we think pastors are above the need for pastoral care. The assumption is that they’ve got it together enough to be counseling and caring for others.

But pastors need pastoring, too. They need people who will care for them regardless of their title, who can offer encouragement, support, and compassion with no return expectations attached.

I have always admired my husband for being a great pastor to other pastors and leaders. For some reason, people in ministry know they can come to him for a listening ear, a word of encouragement, or a loving exhortation for their own lives.

If you are a pastor, who is your pastor? And is your church providing pastoral care for your own leaders?
