Richard & Becky Casteel

After 50 years of missionary work, church planting, pastoral ministry and denominational leadership, Becky and I feel called to devote this next season to helping leaders sustain their calling over the long haul.

We are called to come alongside these great pastors, missionaries and leaders to encourage them through:

  • Regular connection

Don't Quit Monday Mornings

They say most pastors feel like giving up and walking away Monday mornings.

The stress of pastoring, of feeling alone and overwhelmed can make any one of us want to go find a "real job".

But it doesn't have to be this way.

What if you could wake up Monday mornings knowing some encouragement was waiting for you?

Join the "Don't Quit Mondays" email

Every Monday morning there will be an email just for you, from me, a pastor who's been where you are. I have faced those dark times of discouragement where I wanted nothing more than to walk away. But, by God's grace God sustained me through 50 years of faithful ministry.

You may not be called to pastor for 50 years, this might just be a single season in your life. But wouldn't it be great to do it faithfully and with joy? 

Sign up and start changing your Monday mornings.

Take me to the sign up.

Serving Central & South America

After over 50 years of pastoral and missionary ministry, we are very excited to be using our gifts and experience to serve as FMI Emissaries in Central and South America. We will focus on caring for the FMI workers and their families in that region. Our goal is to come alongside of FMI workers to offer mentoring, encouragement, coaching and connection. We will also train coaches and mentor leaders in the region to help raise up more and better leaders for the harvest.

Coaching Leaders in the USA and Abroad

As mentioned above we will be focusing much of our effort on coaching and mentoring. Both Becky and I have recently gone through Coaching Certification and are poised to offer a systematic, proven, and consistent way to help develop leaders who are looking to build important skills and tools as strategic leaders.

Preaching & Teaching

Of course we will continue to teach and preach as needed back in our home church in Arizona, but we will also be spending more time traveling and ministering wherever the doors to minister are opened to us.

Please be in prayer for us as we step into this new season of life and ministry as we remember that it is...
"Not by might, nor by power, buy by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts."
