Why?

For most of my life I have worked a "normal" job, mixing with all sorts of people. I have always sought to serve in the church in ministry and share my story of how God made a difference in my life. 5 years ago things changed it took up the role of a pastor at my local church.

I always wanted to do this but never thought it would happen. The chance to actually work full time building the local church and God's kingdom was like all my birthdays had come at once.

5 years in and although it has given me some incredible highs it has also produced some incredible lows. Yesterday was one of those days. I left my office after 12 hours wondering why I do this. Its certainly not for the money - I took a substancial decrease to take up this role. Its certainly not for an easy life - i've never worked so hard or sacrificed so much family time.

I am still left with a burning desire inside to see people who are hurt & broken experience this incredible relationship that is possible with an awesome God!

I don't do it for Christians, I do it for those yet to start following Jesus.
