Hi, I’m Ricky Van Pay.
I’m a health coach, a speaker, and a writer. I do this will the sole purpose of being a mouthpiece and instrument for God’s glory. I am an avid learner by reading, researching, and interviewing successful people across a wide range of disciplines that have unlocked the keys to holistic transformation.
I experiment with what I learn from others so I can grow personally, as well as to help those in ministry, specifically pastors, get spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically healthy.
I then share what I learn in my email newsletter. I don’t have all the answers and I’m still learning myself. I’m happy to share what I’ve learned so far with transparency and vulnerability.

At the core of my work is a simple, but powerful question:
How can we create a sustainable lifestyle and become healthier as pastors, church planters, missionaries, staff members, and all others in ministry?
I am on a crusade to help my peers become healthier by developing a theology of health so they can multiply themselves in their families and churches.
The first way I try to answer that question is to take the complex and make it simple to understand. There’s so much information regarding health today, how does a pastor have the time to dig through it, let alone know how to apply? What are the reasons that cause pastors to be unhealthy and what can I do to streamline it for them to save time and pain?
The second way I try to answer that question is to apply these insights to everyday life. What are the most effective ways to combat the vicious cycle of weight loss and weight gain and use proven scientific research that will lead to life transformation? How can we zero in on the roadblocks of a pastor’s life and overcome mental and emotional barriers? How can we create healthy habits that will lead to a lifestyle of health?
My ultimate goal is to answer a question that lies at the core of what it means to be a fit pastor: is it possible to master healthy habits that shape our lives and, if so, how do we do it? My hope is that—even if I can only answer this question in a modest way—my work will save you time, make you more effective, and help you build better habits.
“If you want to make it for the long haul, you need to hire Ricky Van Pay to help you live with the passion, energy and zeal that God intends you to have through a healthy lifestyle. I urge you to not spend so much time ministering to people that you neglect taking care of yourself. Hire Ricky Van Pay and it will change your life.” – Casey Graham
