The mission of Ministry Outfitters is to support pastors and strengthen ministries. We accomplish this through coaching and encouragement, training and equipping, and hands-on ministry assistance.
The concept of Ministry Outfitters was born out of years of experience in working in church ministry and seeing first-hand the struggles that ministry leaders face on a daily basis, particularly those pastors in smaller congregations.
Ministry Outfitters is a 501(c)(3) corporation.
