Being a Pastor is the highest and most honorable vocation on earth. Other jobs may touch more people; but no one touches people in a more lasting way then a pastor! Pastor cares about every aspect of a person’s life, and then goes beyond that to eternal life. We share in the joys and sorrows. They call doctors when babies are being birthed into the world but call Pastors when souls depart.
A pastor shapes a person's faith. He or she brings people closer to God and enhances global peace through salvation and discipleship of one’s soul. Who else has the audacity to speak for God! And yet, God calls Pastors after His own heart to bring about His kingdom before God's people.
I have had the privilege of being a pastor for 35 years now. I am coming to an end and a beginning. It's time for me to move into a new phase of ministry. I will focus more on our relationship with God, the quality of our faith experience and doing what matters---what lasts!
I am in this for the long journey. I am no longer the little 23 year old boy; I now begin the years serving as a mature pastor. God has blessed me with a wonderful family and ministry. The kingdom of God is in sight and the Savior is closer than ever before. It is a privilege serving you and I love.
