Pastoral Support


Being a leader in ministry can be so rewarding, but it can also be very draining. Linda Hutchinson, Rock Solid’s Executive Director, and her husband Merrill have been in your shoes. After almost 20 years in church leadership, Linda stepped away in 2018 from her paid ministry position in the church to begin Rock Solid Families.

Merrill and Linda understand how difficult and isolating ministry can be and how weary church leaders and their families can get. Satan would love nothing more to come in and distract, divide, discourage, and destroy the amazing things God is doing through the Church. Which is why Rock Solid Families is committed to support and encourage church leaders, paid or unpaid, any way they can.

They believe Rock Solid church leaders help to develop Rock Solid families, churches and communities. They understand the exponential impact supporting and encouraging church leaders can have on the Kingdom.  This is why Rock Solid Families offers free, confidential coaching to paid and unpaid church leaders.

Merrill and Linda have over 30 years of experience working with individuals and families dealing with things such as:

  • Infidelity and other marital issues

  • Depression/Anxiety/Self-Harm

  • Church disagreements and division

  • Parenting/School issues

  • Addictions such as Drugs/Alcohol and Pornography

  • Doubts/questions about Faith

  • Health Crises

  • Care of Aging parents

  • Death/Dying

  • Cultural/society issues and pressures

They would love to connect with you, listen to you, and pray for you. Men, email Merrill Hutchinson today and set up a free, confidential coaching session at Ladies, don’t try and deal with things alone. Get some help today by emailing Linda at Again, Merrill and Linda understand how difficult and sometimes risky it is for church leaders to confide and seek help for themselves or their family.
