Lifting church leaders since 2003

Now an individual program of Dickson Valley Ministries.


As Aaron and Hur lifted Moses’ arms, Lifting Arms Ministry lifts the arms of church leaders.  We invest in pastors.  We help them endure the challenges of ministry.  We encourage them.  We train them.  And, we inspire them. That is what we do.  Our mission is to…

…build up the body of Christ, the Church, one leader at a time.



Lifting Arms Ministry walks with you through the challenges of ministry.  The goal is to guide you onto the path of Enduring Ministry, which we define as excellence in ministry over time.  Here are some of the ways we want to encourage you.

Want to change your life?  Really?  Let us help you make that change!  Let’s get you started on your way to enduring ministry!

Gather your church leaders together and let us guide you in everything from visioning and goal setting to leadership development and teamwork.  Let us know what your specific need is and we will tailor a workshop for you.

A spiritual discipline that is often overlooked is to take time away from your regular routines and environments for the purpose of connecting with the Lord.  Let us provide a location and direction for your next retreat.

“Prior to my coaching relationship with LAM, I felt overwhelmed in ministry. I knew I was called to serve God and God’s people, but, in all honesty, I had no idea what I was doing. LAM helped me organize myself for efficiency in ministry, as well as leading me through a process for establishing, articulating, implementing, and evaluating both vocational and personal goals. LAM’s nurture, encouragement, and friendship have been invaluable as I grow as a person and a leader of God’s people.
