This might not make sense unless you’ve been in “vocational ministry” in some capacity (and even then it might not and that’s OK), but, after 10 years of full-time pastoring with no break, it was important for Kristi and I to have an undetermined amount of time during which “ministry” as a profession was completely off of the table.
This led Kristi and I to prayerfully resign from ministry in January, 2015. After of eight months out of ministry as a profession, I have begun to miss parts of my former life as a pastor. Though I do not see myself returning to vocational ministry at the moment, I do feel like God has gifted and compelled me to publicly share God’s Word with others. And, honestly, after eight months, I miss preaching.
Since Kristi and I are in a time of transition, it’s a perfect time to make myself available for pulpit-supply.
If you are a pastor: Would you like a pulpit break? Do you have a Sunday on your calendar you just can’t fill (I’m better than nothing!)? Would you like your congregation to hear the same thing you’ve been saying but from someone else?
If you are not a pastor: Do you know a pastor who might like to have someone preach one Sunday?
Contrary to popular opinion, I am not too much of a loony. For proof, you can hear some of my former sermons here.
I am also available to speak at conferences, camps, quinceaneras. I also do weddings, vow renewals, (and funerals).
