You may be wondering who I am. I don’t speak at huge conferences. I don’t come from a long line of pastors.
I am in the trenches like you. I love Jesus, and I love His Church!
After growing up in the Bible belt, I saw too many cultural Christians walk away from faith and/or never fully experience the life God offers us. Too often these were the very Christians who were giving Jesus a bad name. Their hypocrisy, judgmental nature were destructive. I was one of them.
Yet I caught glimpses of what could be. I began to meet people with a vibrant faith that inspired and challenged me. My life really began to change as I fully surrendered my life to following Jesus and His ways. I felt God calling me to become a pastor when I was at youth camp when the speaker read the passage: “The harvest is plentiful and the workers are few.” And he asked: “Is God calling you to be one of His workers?”
