Pastoral Care

“Healthy pastors beget healthy churches.” In the complex world of ministry today, there are times when care-giving pastors and church leaders need their own support and care to navigate the demands they face. This may be an absolutely confidential conversation or offering other supportive resources so that they are not just “surviving,” but “thriving” in ministry…and ultimately finishing well.

Superintendent Rich Guerra has intentionally established this position for the help, well-being and care of our SoCal Network pastors, staff leaders and their spouses/families.

If you would like to talk in a confidential environment about your life, marriage and/or family, or ministry, please contact George directly by phone or email. He is available to meet at a mutually convenient location to offer care and support to our SoCal Network.
