September Tucson Surge Lunch

Topic: The Pastor and His Friends

You’ve heard it said before: Pastors are lonely. Pastors and other Christian leaders often struggle to find deep, trusted friendships for a variety of reasons. They’ve been hurt in the past. They don’t know who to trust. They experience shame due to moral struggles. The lack of freedom to be transparent can lead to the loss of healthy accountability and burnout.
With over four decades of full-time ministry experience, Pastor John Miller has observed closely the need for true friendship and accountability when it comes to pastoral longevity and overall spiritual health.
We hope this lunch will prove helpful to all pastors and Christian leaders.
