Help For Leaders

Confidential, Compassionate Support at No Cost

Chris Cannon has a heart for pastors.

Over the last 27 years, Chris has been a youth pastor, spiritual formation pastor, executive pastor, and most recently was the lead pastor for a church he planted in 1997. He understands the pressures, challenges and pitfalls of ministry. He understands what it takes to succeed, as well as the work involved in bouncing back from failure.

He’s here to serve you. At no cost to you. Why? Because we at HomeWord believe that healthy leaders are the key to healthy churches. And healthy churches build healthy families, and healthy families transform a community.

You can reach Chris directly at 310.697.9190. You may also contact him through the form below.

Simply state the area of life and ministry you would like support in navigating, and Chris will be in contact with you within 24 hours.

Some of the most areas of a pastor’s life that Chris most often addresses with pastors include:

  • Burnout
  • Sexual infidelity/pornography
  • Overcoming failure
  • Work/life balance… and all that this entails
  • Feelings of being under appreciated
  • Talking pastors off the ledge (Mondays, usually)
  • Loneliness

Chris’ relational, transparent style of ministry has made him a valued and vital part of the HomeWord team. We hope you will meet him, and/or introduce him to someone you know who needs a little extra support to navigate the often stormy waters of ministry.

HomeWord’s Commitment to Healthy Leaders

Pastors are perhaps the most under-appreciated change agents in the world. But you probably already knew that. Even the healthiest of pastors struggle with the pressures of ministry today(deadlines, budgets, church attendance, marriage/family time, social media, temptation) In fact, over 1,500 pastors will leave the ministry each month, and only one out of ten will actually retire as a pastor.

Offering Chris as a resource to you and other leaders is just one of the ways that we at HomeWord are fulfilling our commitment to healthy marriages, families, churches and communities. We encourage you to utilize him. He is a gift from HomeWord to you.
