Pastors and Churches Thrive


Bob Merritt is the retired pastor of Eagle Brook Church in MN, that became a church of 28,000 and 10 locations under his leadership. Today, Bob helps pastors and churches navigate the heavy load of leading and speaking that can feel overwhelming.

Bob has a big heart for pastors and church leaders who’ve had some success but have reached a leadership challenge that if not overcome could turn into a crisis. During his 35 years of ministry Bob encountered virtually every personal and professional struggle known to pastors. Looking back, he realizes how valuable seasoned counsel would’ve been. This is now what Bob hopes to offer fellow pastors in the trenches.
