Winston Salem, NC (PRWEB) August 15, 2006
Winston-Salem,NC (PRWEB) August 15, 2006 –- Many people turn to pastors when they need help or counseling but until now, there’s been no place for pastors to turn when they need help for their personal and professional problems. That’s why Jan Hinton, a certified coach and trainer from Winston-Salem, NC has launched http://www.ePastorNetwork.com (ePN) the Internet’s first membership website for Christian pastors.
The membership website offers dozens of articles and audio downloads helping pastors deal with the professional and personal challenges they face as ministers.
“Our new website provides ministers with a safe place to get their questions answered and get support for their struggles and concerns,” says Hinton.
A recent nationwide study of Protestant ministers found that one in every five pastors is currently dealing with a very difficult family situation.
http://www.epastornetwork.com addresses “touchy issues” such as pastor divorce and remarriage, as well as sensitive issues like job burnout, depression, and questioning one’s faith.
The website provides advice and support on professional issues such as the weekly pressure to prepare sermons, hiring and firing church staff, setting boundaries and saying "no" to Church members.
In addition to audio recordings and print downloads, ePN has three main departments:
A Personal Well Being section offering pastors information about marriage and family concerns, sexuality, weight loss and nutrition, depression and stress management solutions;
A Pastor in Action section offering pastors training and support on leadership, time management, setting priorities and establishing boundaries;
A Spiritual Vitality section providing spiritual support and resources.
A limited number of charter memberships are being offered and pastors are invited to try ePN for a nominal fee before continuing their month-to-month membership. Trial members get full access to the website’s private membership area, including the pastor’s forum where they can ask questions and offer answers.
