Where do pastors go when they need a pastor? Almost 20-years ago, a co-worker of mine asked that question. As it turns out, that pastor turned to me. What made the youth pastor safe I can’t tell you, but in the years since, many pastors and other church professionals have turned to me in times of struggle or crisis.
Are you questioning your faith? Struggling with your sexuality? Does porn or sexually acting out feel beyond your control? Perhaps you’re unsure how to move forward in ministry? Could it be that your wife and kids view the congregation as your priority? There are few pastoral struggles and challenges I am not personally acquainted with.
Let me come along side you and together we can sort out a path forward. Because when pastors need a pastor, they turn to Pastor Joe.
At my core, I am a pastor. While that is who I am, my journey to the pastorate was anything but holy. From an early age, church fueled my quest for performance-based acceptance. It worked so well, I ended up in the pulpit. Sadly, when anything but the Holy Spirit drives your ministry, the damage done to your family and your own soul is catastrophic.
I know from experience that many pastors, whatever their initial motivations, are struggling in their ministry. Their families cry out for a spouse or parent who is never home. Dry souls desperately give what little moisture they have to their congregations.
There is a better way, and together, we can find it.
- One-on-one (in person or via video)

I have almost 20 years of service, but this freelance approach is new so I’m starting with low rates. My one request is that you write a review my services (anonymously if you choose) and, if you’re satisfied, refer others in my direction (no need to reveal how I served you).
- One-on-One Pastoral Care – $50/hr
- Group Work (online or in person) – $25/hr
- Finding Traction Course – $250 for 12-weeks of group work for pastors struggling with compulsive sexual behavior
I will develop additional courses based on demand. Contact me and let’s see how I can help.
Contacting me does not commit you to purchase my services and it does not obligate me to provide services. It is initiating a conversation so we can both discern if I’m the right person for your needs.
