Ford Ministry


We are committed to being a safe place for ministry leaders to process through whatever is going on in their personal lives and in their ministries. Knowing that ministry leaders are not perfect or exempt from struggles and challenges that living in this world can bring, our desire is to be good listeners and to provide encouragement and counsel consistent with God’s heart. Our focus is to provide biblically based counseling, coaching, and equipping. We also offer marriage intensives to help couples who are in crisis or just feel stuck and want to take their relationship to the next level. We want to help ministry leaders be encouraged and healthy so that they can do their work for the Kingdom.  

Our Background

Kathy and I are both native Texans and met while we were students at the University of Texas. Our involvement as volunteer leaders with Young Life began our ministry life together. We married in 1980 and have two grown children, both married, and two grandchildren. After going to seminary, I served as a youth pastor at a small church in a small town. That experience helped me realize I was not equipped to help hurting people who were coming to me for counsel. This led me to go back to school to get a degree in Biblical Counseling. After graduation, I served as a Pastor of Congregational Care and Counseling at a large church in a large city. Prior to coming to Paraclete, I served as a Chaplain for Lamb’s Tale Ministries. Lamb’s Tale has a heart similar to Paraclete in that they desire to support ministry leaders.  
Kathy has always been very involved with me in ministry. She has a tender heart and has a wonderful ability to connect with people. She audited the core courses in the counseling program I went through. Her ability to connect with people at a heart level is truly a God given gift. We enjoy coming alongside ministry leaders and engaging with them about what is happening in their personal life as well as their ministry. It is truly an honor to partner with other ministry leaders and help them to become all that God has designed them to be.

Paraclete associates raise funds to cover the cost of their ministry. Most associates are supported workers, which means that they also raise funds for a salary that is controlled by the Paraclete Board of Directors.

Paraclete separately accounts for donations preferenced for a specific ministry. The organization uses ten percent of all preferenced donations to cover shared expenses.
