There are several local communities for pastors to engage in. It is highly recommended that pastors commune with each other often. Being a pastor is unique calling. It is important to gather together and share with one another.  Pastoring a is a very lonely place. Who better to understand the struggles of a pastor than another pastor. Find a community!
