Partners For Strong Families exists to strengthen families by increasing access to excellent counseling and marriage resources. The primary way we do this is by developing scholarship opportunities and pursuing grants to bring the cost of quality therapeutic support within reach.
This mission to increase access to counseling is motivated by a desire to support the underserved; those who could not afford it otherwise. When one considers the personal development and soul-care needs of those in the helping professions, and ministers in particular, the same situation is at play. Their need is great, but their resources to access it are slim.
This is why our initiative to align a Spiritual Direction and Coaching ministry within the Partners For Strong Families network is such a marvelous opportunity. While offering counseling and marriage resources to anyone seeking that support, we are also able to offer Spiritual Direction and Ministry Coaching through the same channels. This has become, in particular, a ministry to ministers. This ministry effort of Partners For Strong Families is lead by Asa Crow M.A. CSD.
When you invest in the ministry of Asa Crow through PFSF, you enable us to make scholarships for spiritual direction or ministry coaching for pastors, missionaries, and ministers across the country and globe. Asa is an ordained minister, certified Spiritual Director, and Personal Development Coach, who also offers Leadership Development Consulting to churches and ministries across the country. For five years Asa has enjoyed a ministry connection with Partners For Strong Families, and now serves as the Executive Director. He constantly encounters ministers and non-profit leaders who are weary or regularly experience the symptoms of burnout. While they recognize their need and are seeking encouragement, they often simply lack the means. It is through the generosity of ministry partners who support this effort, that we are able to offer scholarships to these individuals, reducing the cost of this vital spiritual support. As a result, exhausted ministers are encouraged, the oppressed are comforted, those in burn-out are shepherded, the” worst-case” is prevented, and starving-bakers can return again to the life giving bread we all need.
Thank you for considering an investment in this vital service to those who serve us so well: our pastors, ministers, and non-profit leaders in our communities. By making a regular gift and joining our team of ministry partners, you are extending care to the caretakers, and comfort to the comforters.
