Are you a struggling pastor? We can help.

Our vision is to work closely and confidentially with shepherds and their families in a safe, loving place where they can heal and grow. Our aim is to help them increase in maturity and wisdom, empowering them to pass that on in their ministries. It’s real help for pastors from pastors.

We have over three decades of experience in coaching and walking the spiritual journey with pastoral leaders. We encourage you to share your struggles in an atmosphere of love, expertise, understanding and confidentiality. We also challenge you with the goal to recover, heal, and be strengthened. Every encounter is designed to seek the rest, wisdom, and will of God together.


Here are some of the services we offer through Tending Shepherds...

  • Pastoral leaders need safe places to openly share their hearts. Weekly one-on-one or group meetings are designed to help pastors and their spouses grow, overcome areas of sin, and form maturity for themselves and their ministries. Spiritual direction is also offered.

  • Getting away can provide rest and a new perspective. Retreats can provide a new view of the landscape of issues, whether for individual pastors or for leadership teams. Retreats can range from day long to week long retreats.

  • Sometimes pastoral leaders need immediate help with complex issues or crises—whether marital or moral issues, financial problems, or personal conflicts. We offer an opportunity to get away in a retreat-type setting to process issues and receive godly counsel.

  • Bringing spiritual formation to an entire church takes skill and experience. We’ve developed a model that is time tested and effective for bringing a church into spiritual maturity. We would welcome the opportunity to assess and develop the right spiritual formation model for your church body.

Dan & Rosemary Moore

In 2022, Pastor Dan retired from Messiah Christian Church, a church he and Rosemary planted under the Grace Ministries International umbrella in 1988. Pastor Dan has his DMin and three master’s degrees in theology, education and counseling. Rosemary practiced law for over 25 years, specializing in complex transactions. She too retired from Messiah in 2022, after spending 13 years on staff as the director of Outreach and Discipleship. She has her master’s degree in Discipleship, is a certified Spiritual Director, and is currently pursuing her DMin.


After over 34 years in pastoral ministry, they understand the stressors and complex problems facing ministry leaders, especially pastors and their spouses, thus Tending Shepherds was born.  Dan and Rosemary have two adult children and enjoy hosting folks around their dining room table and caring for anyone in need.
