Growing Together

Although there are times when we have all been tired of Zoom in the last few months, the pandemic has taught us that Zoom, and other technologies have created the opportunity for people all over the world to come together. We are excited to announce some of these opportunities.

Mutual Encouragement Groups

We can often learn much and be encouraged just by getting together and discussion issues we are facing in the ministry. We have encouragement groups for both pastors and pastors’ wives.

Dr. Tim York will lead a Pastor Hangout. This will be an opportunity for pastors discuss any concerns they have and resources that might be available to them.

Mrs. Carolyn Dwyer will lead a Pastor’s Wife Hangout. During this meeting she will encourage and provide resources to help support pastors’ wives.

Professional Counseling

From time to time, all of us could benefit from having someone we can talk to confidentially. The Executive Office, in partnership with Free Will Baptist North American Ministries, offers the Refresh Program for churches and pastors. A new resource of that program is confidential counseling through professional counselor Tom Jones. If this is something you would like to know more about, call us at 877-767-7659 or email us at questions@nafwb.org and we will explain how you can take advantage of these resources.
