...90 percent of people entering vocational ministry will end up in another field.
— John Ortberg


Pastors, missionaries and ministry leaders need help. Many are burning out and some are turning to besetting sinful behavior that is ripping their families apart.  Ten years after graduating seminary, only 90 percent of people entering vocational ministry will end up in another field. This is tragic. It’s the goal of Listen Ministries to help reverse these trends by providing genuine listening, sound biblical Christian counseling, and needed encouragement to these leaders both locally (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) and nationally through modern technology. Historically, Christian leaders have not always sought counsel for various reasons such as cost, safety and privacy concerns, and a belief that they can face the challenge alone. Listen Ministries believes that God has put us in community with others and we desire to come alongside those that are in need of compassionate counsel.
