Pastoral Wellness

The Baptist Resource Network cares about the health of our pastors and their families.

Ministry can be exceptionally lonely, so the Baptist Resource Network offers an extended support network, prayer encouragement, retreats, and other events to help refresh our partnering churches’ leaders, pastor’s wives, and families.

We come alongside lead pastors in four ways:


The BRN offers free Pastor Blessing events and gatherings, such as a day at the golf range or other special outings, for pastors, pastor couples and/or pastor families. These events provide pure fun and camaraderie with fellow ministry leaders. Please contact your local regional consultant to find out more about the Pastor Blessing opportunities in your region. If you do not know who your regional consultant is, please contact our Help Desk by email at, or by calling or texting us at (717) 652-5856.


Ministry can be quite tiring. The BRN offers pastors and their wives free use of its Guest House in Harrisburg, as well as access to a list of other preapproved respite locations. The Volunteer House  also is available for families to enjoy. Here is a list of ministry-vetted respite locations currently available. 


The BRN seeks to provide wellbeing resources and events for pastors and church staff so they know they do not have to face ministry alone.


GuideStone Financial Services serves churches and organizations with products and services that promote financial health and spiritual wellness. The BRN partners with GuideStone to provide free protection benefits and retirement contributions for qualified candidates. The BRN also offers Legacy and Estate Planning for churches, individuals and families.


For your assistance, here is a list of ministry-vetted counseling and coaching resources:
