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.
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."
- 42% of pastors under age 45 are ready to quit right now.
- 56% of pastors cite "the immense stress of the job" as number one reason for considering quitting.
- 43% of pastors say they feel lonely and isolated.
- 38% say current political divisions have caused them to consider stepping away from ministry.
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!
