This article draws from a survey of pastors regarding their careers as healers. The purpose was to identify personal and health issues affecting clergy competency and their barriers to seeking help and to help develop resources to assist them. An earlier survey of psychologists with personal and health issues threatening their competency was modified to better serve pastors, while keeping the content consistent to the purpose of the research. Both pastors and psychologists provide help in time of trouble, work with belief systems, and provide intervention. Both rely on interpersonal helping skills and acknowledge the importance of ethical principles. Finally, a training program is suggested, designed to train senior ministry-partners to serve as resources for pastors in need of help.
