I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. John 17:23 (ESV)

The John 17:23 Pastoral Support Group movement is being raised up to be a relational haven of hope, help, encouragement, renewal and unity for God’s chosen, anointed, and gifted servant-leaders. These groups are places where pastors in active pastoral ministry can find acceptance, understanding, support, relationship, love, appreciation, respect and accountability.

Jesus never sends anyone out to do ministry alone, for serving alone is a sure formula for failure and defeat. Our desire is that pastors and Christian leaders who become involved in a John 17:23 group will see themselves as a part of God’s pastoral team, not in competition with one another but as co-workers in the one body of Christ which just happens to meet in many different places.

We believe that as we seek this kind of unity and mutuality of support, which Jesus himself prayed for, we are preparing ourselves, our churches, and our regions for a mighty working of the Holy Spirit. Our vision is to offer this ministry to every believing pastor and Christian leader and see it spread throughout our nation and beyond.
