At 6.14 Ministries we have a passion for equipping local churches with the tools, knowledge, inspiration, and resources they need to better impact their communities with the Gospel of Jesus. Our board members, directors, and leadership team are ready to help you do just that. Take a minute to get to know us!
Ministry can be exciting and wonderful. It can also be overwhelming, exhausting, and even discouraging. Whether you're in need of pulpit fill, discipleship training, pastoral counseling, prayer and consultant coverage, digital media implementation and training, or a host of other things, we can help. We love the Local Church.
Rescuing Churches is a weekly discussion on church revitalization and pastoral life featuring Executive Director Stan Givens and is hosted by Communications Director Josh Givens. As a father and son ministry duo, Stan & Josh are joined by occasional special guests. Rescuing Churches is available on all major podcasting platforms.
At 6.14 Ministries we realize that every financial investment we receive is a precious gift and a timeless sacrifice. We are dedicated to faithfully stewarding our donations to the fullest and most optimal potentials in order to advance our work for the Kingdom of God. If you would like to financially contribute, you can learn more here.
Ever feel like you're trying to pull a train uphill while all of the passengers are busy shifting it into reverse?
Leading a small to midsize church in America is one of the hardest endeavors in today's culture. Many pastors are passionate about shepherding, but few are ready, willing, or able to juggle the overwhelming entanglements of workforce oversight, conflict management, economics, and the nightmares of bureaucratic decision-making they often encounter.
6.14 Ministries puts resources in your hands and coaches in your network. Stop pulling the train. Start pastoring your people.
Does your church seem directionless? We renew vision and hope for struggling churches by identifying strengths and values and scheduling events with local support teams.
You're not in this alone. We utilize counseling, consulting, personalized coaching, pulpit fill, and partnerships to encourage pastors who are battling burnout, depression, and exhaustion.
We support pastors and core church leaders by providing applicable resources, podcast content, conferences, training, and visits.
The front door of the Local Church At Large has shifted and that door is more digital than ever before. We improve how your church communicates with the world — locally and globally — by implementing and/or enhancing your digital and social media presence, audience engagement, website, graphic design, community relations strategies, marketing, branding, and much more.
We unite our team and your team with the ultimate goal of uniting your church to your community through healthy outreach events.
Sometimes it takes a fresh set of eyes to see what we can't see for ourselves. Let us evaluate your ministry's goals, leadership teams, and staff efforts, and then analyze how they are impacting your community. We also make in-person visits to assess the fellowship of your congregants and utilize personalized ministry surveys to gauge church health.

6.14 Ministries wants to come alongside church leaders who are struggling or discouraged and help them renew their vision, revitalize their volunteers, refresh their members, restore their hope, and recapture the calling that the Lord has upon the church. We long to help churches follow the command of Nehemiah 2:17 — "Come, let us rebuild so that we will no longer be a reproach."
We long to restore and strengthen your church's staff, leadership, and volunteers as they follow God's call. After 38-plus years of ministry, I know how it feels to be a leader in need of help. I know how it feels to need financial resources or experienced friends. Sometimes ministers just need to be able to talk with fellow ministers who share similar battle scars. There is never an upfront charge for our services. E-mail or call us and let us know how we can assist your staff, ministry, or church family. We love serving the Local Church!

But, it didn't happen overnight. Long before Stan and his son Josh launched this ministry, God was working behind the scenes in many ways (as He so often does in our lives.) Stan's journey has been one filled with things that only God Himself could do!
