Kyle Circle on behalf of Jim Hogan Standing Stone Ministries, Inc.

"Strong ministry leaders create strong followers of Christ. And strong followers of Christ can change the world."

Pastors dedicate their life to helping others in need. But who can a pastor turn to when they face a time of trial or uncertainty?

Jim Hogan is founder and CEO of Standing Stone Ministry, an international organization that deploys experienced ministry leaders to provide vital care and support for pastors and their spouses. Standing Stone’s team plays the role of a shepherd, guiding pastors through the ups and downs of ministry.

Jim’s calling to found this one-of-kind organization was borne out of seeing firsthand the toll that ministry took on pastors at his home church. Three generations of his family had lost their pastors to the scourge of burnout and infidelity. Guided by his passion for helping others, Jim and his wife Debbie sought God’s call to create a ministry that would strengthen those who serve Him and serve as a shield against these very real, very human threats.

In 2002, the Hogans founded Standing Stone Ministry in their log home in Chromo Colorado along the Navajo River. With God’s guidance, Standing Stone has grown from a small home business to a global force, supporting ministries here in the U.S., as well as Africa, South Korea, India, the United Kingdom and other countries.

Strong ministry leaders create strong followers of Christ. And strong followers of Christ can change the world. Jim Hogan and Standing Stone Ministry play a crucial role in seeing this change through day in, day out.

Farmers & Merchants Bank has been proudly doing business with Jim Hogan for 3 years.
