Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. — 2 Timothy 4:2
Every minister quickly learns that Sunday morning is just not enough. We pour our hearts into every message as a herald on behalf of the King of Kings. Though our flocks are fed and edified, it is impossible to say everything we would like or speak to every issue that has risen up within the culture. That is why this blog exists. First and foremost, I long that it would provide weekly encouragement and shepherding to those who God has graciously allowed me to lead at my church. Secondly, I hope that this encouragement also comes into contact with other Christians, and that it provides thought provoking and spiritually edifying posts for you. Lastly, I hope it comes into contact with other young ministers who can relate to my struggles and my accomplishments, and that my transparency regarding my own ministry efforts may assist you in your call as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This blog site is an opportunity for me to go beyond Sunday mornings, to bring the Word of God to you throughout the week, and to ramble on multiple subjects regarding the church and the current cultural climate. Most importantly, I want to give you glimpses into my life as a young minister to reveal to you that the man who stands behind the pulpit is just that; a man. A man who is radically in need of the grace of God. A man who longs to see you know Christ as the greatest treasure imaginable. A man who in season and out of season puts forth the word of God as the infallible and perfect source of truth for you to feed upon. I hope God uses these posts to bring edification and encouragement in your life. If you ever have comments, questions, or prayer requests please do not hesitate to contact me. These are the ramblings of a young minister.
