Since 1983, NRP has been pastoring pastors. We are a team of pastors and leaders whose mission is to empower, encourage, and equip local churches to effectively reach their communities for Christ. Our endeavor is to complement and advance the vision of the church through relationship, teaching, accountability, and support. As we unite to grow churches, we continue to further the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. Every pastor needs a pastor.


Affirm and encourage pastors, their families, and their local church teams. 

Resource pastors, their wives, and teams for success. 

Connect for relational partnership and oversight. 

Assist pastors in defining, developing, and fulfilling vision. 

Encourage churches to launch life-giving, spiritually healthy churches, both locally & globally. 

Equip pastors in cultural engagement.

Promote generational legacy.


“Genuine relationships are here, sincere love is here, biblical covering is here, sound doctrine and theology are here, fresh vision is here, solidity is here, unity is here, and most importantly, the Holy Spirit is here.” Pastor Jake Claunch, TN


“What is NRP to me? Excellent leadership and covering. Accountability and government

for the local church. Excellent conferences and relationships. Biblically faithful. Provides encouragement, direction, and wisdom.” Pastor Chuck Vizthum, MI


“NRP is one of the greatest things I have personally experienced in my life. It is a network of pastors that fathers pastors. How important is a father to a family? That’s how important NRP is to a local pastor. Every pastor needs a pastor, and every father, needs a father and that is what I’ve found with NRP.” Pastor Keith Hodges, AL


At NRP we provide fathering and spiritual oversight for the Lead Pastor and his family. In addition, we give assistance to enhance the vision of the church, and also provide impact training for the Lead Pastor and Leadership Team. Church planting is central to our mission and we network and help finance this effort across North America and regions beyond. We work to raise up a prophetic generation of sons and daughters who will engage our culture and we are a connection for relational partnership and oversight. We help raise up a multi-generational church.


We believe the Godhead is one in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that scripture, the Holy Bible, is inspired by God, inerrant, and the final authority for all people for all time. We believe that Jesus Christ is God and man, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, crucified in the flesh, resurrected bodily after the third day, ascended into heaven, and is now at the right hand of God, one day to return. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that his sin resulted in physical death, spiritual death (separation from God), and eternal death (hell). We believe that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are in need of redemption through Jesus. We believe that when Jesus gave His life on the cross, He bore the punishment for our sins, and that all who believe in Him are justified and redeemed by His sacrifice. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the redeemed to go to heaven and the bodily resurrection of the lost to be cast into hell. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. We believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are evident in the life of believers today. We believe in the presence and application of the offices of the apostle, prophet, evangelist, teacher, and pastor in the local church. We believe that the local church is the expression of the Body of Christ in the world today.
