The Pastor's Network was started by three Pastors of small independent
Dr. Michael McKinney, Senior Pastor of World for Jesus International
Christian Center and Ministries is the director of the fellowship. The
idea of the Pastor's Network was really launched
when Dr. McKinney wrote an article for the Christian Times entitled, "Pastoring
the Smaller Church." Many pastors called to say how much they were
blessed by the article and when they heard about the fellowship, they began to come.
1. We do not proselyte. We believe strongly in commitment and dedication to the local church. Pastors do not proselyte members from fellow pastors. Evangelists and missionaries do not proselyte members from the churches they visit. The Evangelist and the missionary regards the pastor as God's servant for that particular congregation and they respect him/her. Their purpose is to encourage, uplift and edify the church and likewise the pastors recognize the contribution that the evangelist and missionary play in the growth of the church and honor them as special gifts to the body of Christ. It is truly a five-fold ministry that is needed in the church today... working together as a team.
2. We pray for one another. As fellow clergy, there are times of difficulty in ministry, personally and professionally. The Pastor's Network believes in praying for one another, and preferring one another in the most holy faith.
3. We support one another. Whenever possible, pastors help pastors. They work together on ministry projects, answering questions, sharing advice and recommendations, and at times the network even shares financially with assist in missionary and/or charity project.
4. We love one another. We believe that ministers are all
servants of God. Jesus Christ is the chief shepherd and therefore we are
co-laborers one with another. The sheep and the ministry belongs to the
Lord. Therefore, we are not in competition. Our goal is to see our
brother succeed in the calling and ministry he/she has been called too.
