My wife and I served as church music directors for a number of years early in our marriage. Working closely with our pastors we saw the wonderful gifts of their ministries, but also the tremendous burdens they bear as they balance vocational and personal responsibilities, oversee the complex organizations which are their parishes, while proclaiming the Gospel. There are few places where they can receive caring and confidential counsel to guide them. Ministry Mentors exists for just that purpose. We are deeply committed to its ministry to pastors.
