Pastor Assist Ministries


Pastor Assist was founded by veteran Pastor Tim Honeycutt to encourage ministers who are experiencing fatigue, crisis or other challenges. The ministry offers prayer, onsite visits and phone calls of encouragement. When visiting onsite, Tim is available to serve in pastoral capacities to give the leadership an opportunity to regroup and regain focus and clarity. Tim is not a consultant, but a peer who has experienced ministry challenges and victories and has dedicated his life to strengthening pastors. Pastor Assist's services are free and Tim provides his own lodging.

RUN stands for Reach the Unreached NOW! At RUN Global, we believe the Great Commission task can be finished in our lifetime, if we RUN! In 2009 RUN Global was started specifically to activate and mobilize the body of Christ to RUN to finish the task of reaching the world with the gospel of Christ.

Now RUN board and staff members are working in additional Asian nations catalyzing more church planting movements.
