Become a Praying Pastor
Nobody ever said it would be easy to be a pastor, but you didn't expect it to be this hard. The financial pressures, the difficult relationships, all the burdens you carry for others— not to mention the guilt you feel about not praying more or being better at it. It has begun to weigh on your ministry, your marriage, and sometimes even your mental health.
Let us help you re-center your life and your ministry around prayer. Pastors and church leaders welcome.

What Others Are Saying
"The impact of the seminar continues to be felt here at Chessington Evangelical Church. In fact, we have been led on from it to write a church purpose statement, to re-shape our values and write a bold vision statement."
- Pastor Gareth Edwards, Chessington Evangelical Church, London
“This seminar was just what we needed as a church. In fact, it was just what we needed in our Board of Elders. It changed everything about the way we do ministry!”
- Pastor Jon Hori, Evangelical Free Church, Chino Hills, CA
“Fellow pastors: I want to pass along a recommendation for an excellent seminar we just hosted at our church. Our elders were very pleased, and the feedback from the congregation has been nothing but positive and enthusiastic. I’m cautious about such things, and so it pleases me to be able to endorse A Praying Life Seminar."
- Pastor Randy Booth, Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church, Nacogdoches, TX
“The ripples this seminar sent through our community have been lasting and significant. Perhaps no more so than the renewal in uninhibited dependent prayer. For Australians who breathe the air of cynicism, a great number of us have been drawn back into prayerfully being a part of God’s story.”
- Pastor Karl Pacholke, Christ Community West, Brisbane, Australia
“We owe you folks at A Praying Life a debt. Keep doing all of this because it is building the kingdom.”
- Pastor Trey Richardson, Sovereign Grace Church of Gilbert, AZ
