From Pastoral Ministry to Behavioral Health with Trevor Hislop



In this episode of the EntrePastors Podcast, we're thrilled to dive deep into the inspiring journey of Trevor Hislop, a former pastor who transitioned into the entrepreneurial world of mental health care. Join hosts Jon Sanders and Les Hughes as they explore how Trevor founded LiveWell Behavioral Health to address crucial gaps in community mental health services. With a remarkable team of 29 providers and 37 staff members, LiveWell offers comprehensive care for individuals, couples, families, and communities.

We'll hear about Trevor's personal story, influenced by his parents' divorce at a young age, leading him to pursue a career in counseling and therapy. Despite an 18-year tenure in various pastoral roles, including creative arts and executive positions, Trevor felt a calling towards vocational care, ultimately steering him to establish LiveWell. The conversation also touches on the complex topic of pastors transitioning from church ministry to marketplace roles, the challenges of identity struggles, and the importance of “holy restlessness”.

Listen in as we uncover Trevor's transition journey, the role of mentorship, and his current work with PastorServe, providing crisis care and coaching for ministry leaders. Whether you're a pastor considering a new season or someone interested in the intersection of faith and entrepreneurship, this episode is packed with insights and inspiration.
