Pastors have a difficult job. According to Barna, “Most pastors work long hours, are constantly on-call, often sacrifice time with family to tend to congregational crises, carry long-term debt from the cost of seminary and receive below-average compensation in return for performing a difficult job. Trained in theology, they are expected to master leadership, politics, finance, management, psychology and conflict resolution.”
We get it. The last thing you need is more work. So, we work to make part of your job easier. When you call about the need for chairs you talk with knowledgeable Product Specialists who help you find the right chair at the right price with the right long-term value. We have fun working with congregations and pastors and pastors have fun working with us. One pastor wrote,
“We’re now just in the stage of properly vision casting to our congregation. I will be in touch. Thank you for your help. By the way, Bertolini chairs have been fantastic to deal with. I was in ‘contact’ with 2 other companies at the beginning. After not hearing back from either for months, one of whom I never heard back from, Bertolini was a clear choice!”
We love to build things and we love the fact other appreciate the quality, attention to detail and value that goes into every chair.
You know what you need, let us help you find the chairs you have been looking for and do with the confidence that what you buy is second only to who you buy from. We have been here for 50 years serving congregations and we will be here another 50 helping pastors and boards and committees get past the purchase and back to the mission they are about.
