The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. They are few because ministry is hard labor. And ministry as a Church Leader can be tough at time. Oh, we know there are days that full of joy and satisfaction. But, we also know there are days of doubt and discouragement. Sometimes, you experience both of those in the same day.
We are thankful for your service to our churches. You are a gift from the Lord to your congregation (even if they don’t always see it.)
Ephesians 4:11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
And to top it off, many of you are in situations that are not paying wages worthy of a laborer. Pastor and church staff are “retiring” left and right because of financial pressure. Our stats say that 70% of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. 1 in 3 have any kind of working budget. And these families are feeling a lot of financial pressure. Many of you are experiencing just that- financial pressure. If that describes your situation- we can help.
On a side note- many of the families in your congregation are working through a lot of financial pressure and we would love to come along side them as well. We are based in NW Arkansas but Zoom with clients all over the world.

Testimonials from Church leaders
Gena and I signed up for financial life coaching from Freedom 5:One about three years ago. Though we felt like we had always been careful with our finances, we were struggling to get on the same page together as a couple, and this had become a topic that led to many of our most difficult disagreements. The financial coaching has benefited us in many ways, but two stand out. First, we gained objective insights about our savings, budgeting, financial priorities, etc. In some ways, we were not as bad off as we feared, and we learned how to do better in some key areas that have helped us make strategic decisions moving forward. Mainly, it helped us get on the same page which has enabled us to argue less and be more generous. The second benefit for us is that we now have a resource we believe in to help other people. As a ministry couple, it is important for us to be able to recommend Freedom 5:one and to say, “It has helped us, too.” Financial life coaching has become a go-to suggestion for couples getting married, going through marital challenges, or just about to step into a new phase of life. The process used at Freedom 5:one has certainly helped us, and we are glad to share about it with others.- Bart Sego, Community Pastor, Fellowship Bible Church
