A Word From Jody Jones, Perissos Director
"Perissos has provided me with a crucial time and place to talk through some of the challenges I face in my ministry and personal life. The team brings a variety of relevant topics to discuss and work through that give a fresh perspective to different areas of life. Perissos doesn't just keep me going, it helps me reach new levels personally, professionally, and as a disciple of Christ. "
"Perissos is exactly what we need more of Matt! I love it. Our pastor leadership is desperate for this right now."
“I have a strong desire to talk regularly with pastors that are outside my network. When I am only interacting with other pastors from my network, it begins to feel competitive instead of collaborative so I am excited about the opportunity to talk weekly with pastors from all over the U.S. who can share in the ups and downs of ministry but to do so without the pressure that networks and denominations tend to add to those conversations.”
I have been lucky over the years to work at a church that has some great leaders speaking into my life and coaching me but this group has caused me to make and complete goals that for some reason I have not been able sustain in the past.
Being a part of Perissos has given me a place to be honest and open about what is going on in my life and it has surrounded me with guys who are genuinely cheering me on, not just as a pastor, but also as a husband, father, and a follower of Jesus. When I was asked to join a Perissos group, I was skeptical because of past experiences but this group is different. It is full of grace and truth and it is a place where I can truly be myself. The church would be a much healthier place if more Pastors got into Perissos groups.”
