The Church Health Initiative

of Greater San Antonio

The Church Health Initiative provides one-on-one coaching relationships, financial assistance, retreats and groups to encourage, connect and support pastors to greater health in every aspect of their lives.

Check out this quick intro video and explore the resources below as we take the next step on our journey to greater health!

Crossroads Webinar Video Series

The Church Health Initiative Crossroads webinar video series highlights the health and wellness of pastors. The series is in 4 parts presented monthly from October 2020 to January 2021 by a team of experts who share information on how pastors can live a healthy and active life. It is also preparation and an invitation for 50 pastors to receive professional coaching from a certified health and wellness coach starting January 2021.

Barnabas Network

“When he (Barnabas) came and saw the grace of God, he was glad, and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose, for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord. So Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul,”

Acts 11:23-25

Many pastors feel isolated, discouraged and ill-equipped to meet the demands of ministry and face the challenges of life. Trusted groups of relationships are one key to weaving the strong fabric of connection, support and encouragement pastors need to thrive. That's why the Church Health Initiative started Barnabas Network Groups where pastors can share more than a meal. If you’re ready to be a part of a dynamic small group that is senior pastor focused, Spirit-led, local and holistic, send us your information and we’ll connect you.

Church Health Initiative Pastor Relief Fund

The Pastor Relief Fund was formed to provide assistance for the basic financial needs of senior pastors and their immediate families. Exclusively for senior pastors in the Greater San Antonio area (Atascosa, Bandera, Bexar, Comal, Guadalupe, Kendall, Medina and Wilson Counties), this one-time gift of up to $500 is to help with basic purchases such as groceries, car repair, medicine, utility bills, etc.

Statewide Pastor Health Survey

A statewide Pastor Health Survey of 560 participants provided valuable information on the health of pastors in Texas. The survey explored spiritual, physical, mental, financial, relational and work health.
