ShepherdCare is a nonprofit National Christian Foundation that is the result of years of research into the dynamics of forced termination in the ministry. Our focus is the health of the minister’s soul. Healthy ministers result in healthy ministries. We desire to teach these insights through coaching, conferences and publications. We assist ministers in acquiring the tools necessary to prevent burnout, avoid moral failure and sustain long-term effectiveness in ministry.

Seven Foundation Stones. Our experience has shown that the difference between failure and long-term effectiveness in ministry rests in the mastery of seven key areas of competency. Ministers deficient in one or more of these areas are more vulnerable to burnout, moral failure and forced termination. These seven common stumbling blocks can be transformed into “foundation stones,” as shared in our book, Preventing Ministry Failure (InterVarsity Press).
