We are Sanctuary.

A ministers' network for mentoring and care.

Who we are.

Several years ago, I went through a time when ministry almost became unbearable. What I needed most at that time was people who understood what I was walking through to take that journey with me. With the assistance of friends, colleagues and helping professionals, I am still in ministry today. I understand however that not everyone has a network around them of support or knows where to go to get the help they need. This is why I have started Sanctuary Network.

Sanctuary Network was born from the belief that life in ministry is not supposed to occur in a vacuum. Instead, we are supposed to be surrounded by a community that provides love, care, mentoring, training, development, resourcing, and rest. Whether you are called a pastor, rector, priest, minister, or bishop, you and your family face unique challenges that are better off tackled within a community of peers who understand what you are going through and are prepared to provide what you need.

Our goal is to be a community of ministers and family members for ministers and family members, regardless of Christian denomination and theology. Jump in with us and let me know how we can help you.

There is sacred safety here for you and your family.

Our Core Values



We believe in order to navigate life with health and success, Christ must be at the center of who we are and all we do. For us the means He is the first filter of consideration in our lives.
Evangelism is more than an action for some in the church, it is a central purpose to the Christian life, starting with the regular evangelism of our own selves. We and all those around us are always in need of the Gospel.
We function as a community, a network of ministers and family members, for ministers and family members. We are about partnership with each other and with the community we serve.
Trauma is a given in ministry, both to ministers and their family members. We seek to give care to the caregivers.
The number one resource we offer is relationship with people who know where you are and what you are going through and will be there through it all. We also make relationships available with professionals who can help in specific areas of expertise.

Statement of Faith

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen.

God the Father, out of His immeasurable love for humanity sent the fullest expression of Himself, Jesus Christ – God the Son, to earth for us and our salvation. Christ, while remaining completely divine, was born of the Virgin Mary completely man, taught the ways of God, lived a sinless life, and for our sake suffered, was forsaken, and crucified for the forgiveness of sin as the one and only redemption of humanity and was buried. By God’s grace, love, and power Christ rose from the grave on the third day, appeared to His friends, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and is preparing an imminent return in power and glory.

Upon His return to Glory, Christ sent the Holy Spirit to bring conviction of sin, revelation of the truth of the Gospel of Christ, drawing of those far from God, adoption of mankind into the Body of Christ through regeneration, and for the purpose of empowering all believers to live their lives as witnesses of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit gives power to all members of the church, women and men, to serve in all capacities with any and all gifts the Spirit may bestow.

The church is one, the body of Christ extending salvation by God’s love and grace to the world. It is a sacramental community through which people can come to live in salvation, healing, hope, joy, peace, and friendship. The church is at its best when together it prays and worships, perfects the saints, demonstrates Godly love and compassion to those outside and inside the family of God, and is at unity of spirit with itself. The Bible, both the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, serves the church as the inspired, authoritative, and infallible word of God in written form. The scriptures more than advise but exist as our final rule for faith and holy action.
