Pastors Outside the Pulpit Our Mission We Want You to Know that We're Here for You. We are here to help, we are available, and we care about you! We will keep God as our number one focus but let everyone know that we are here for them and their needs. Pastors Outside the Pulpit is a beacon of light to the community, bringing our message that pastors are not confined to the pulpit but are real people who are interested in helping their communities. We want to show them that pastors are not just limited to their churches and religious institutions but that we care about the good of all people regardless of race or religion. We want you to know that we are transparent and will always be available for anyone who needs us. We want everyone to know that pastors are people who can relate with them on a personal level, and we want everyone to know that God is at the center of everything we do. We believe in being a help to our community no matter what it takes—whether it's volunteering, making a donation, or advocating for an issue you care about. And we believe in keeping God as our number one focus. We don't want anything else getting in the way of Him being first in our lives and at the center of everything we do! Pastors outside the pulpit are trying to shine a light in every community by showing them that we are not confined to our pulpits. We are aware of the problems that affect communities and are committed to being a beacon of light to them. We want to be a resource for our community, whether they're struggling with addiction or depression, their family is torn apart by divorce, or they're looking for answers after losing a loved one. We are trying to show that their “pastor” roles do not limit pastors. They can also help those in need regardless of race or religion. We strive for transparency and openness in all matters related to our organization and keep God as the number one focus. Our Belief: As Pastor Outside The Pulpit, we believe that everyone should be able to know that pastors are real people too. We want everyone—a pastor or not—to feel safe in our presence and know they can always come to us with questions or concerns. We are transparent, as we want everyone to know that pastors are real people too! Our Purpose: Our purpose is not to be confined to our pulpits but to be transparent with what we see and feel in our l and let others know that pastors are real people too. We will continue to let them know that there are many different ways for people to serve God, and it does not always have to be through a church or religious institution.
