The tagline for the Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers is “Accelerating Church Health Worldwide” and Dr. Ramesh Richard repeats almost every day that pastoral health leads to church health which leads to societal health!

Today, during the Spiritual Engagement Track, Dr. Jason Tan from the Great Commission Training Centre in the Philippines added another crucial element to this process: Marital Health! He suggested during our track on Marriage and Family that Marital Health leads to Pastoral Health and you can guess where to take it from there…

He and several case study presenters pictured here shared several ways that a pastor must focus on his family. Jason went as far to challenge the primary training institutions that require things like Greek and Hebrew but only make courses on Marriage and Family as optional when they are so crucial to the fruitfulness of a pastor!

He shared how we used to hear of pastors who had moral failure in the ministry but now we are hearing about wives leaving their pastor husbands due to neglect, abuse, lack of provision, etc. He even mentioned a child who said to his father, “Dad, how many more lost souls am I worth?” Ouch! Imagine that, a pastor willing to abandon his child’s spiritual condition for the sake of others. Jason further exhorted the room: “Pastors: Don’t you dare help another family if your own family is suffering!"

Jason called for us to make a New Manifesto charging pastors to care for their families as a top priority in ministry quoting passages like 1 Timothy 3:4-5 and Malachi 2:13-15.

Join us in pleading your life to a new manifesto! Why? Because Marital (and Family) Health leads to Pastoral Health which leads to Church Health which will help Societal Health!
