As I continue to grow as a pastor, I’ve come to find revelations on certain aspects of the church, Jesus, and ministry as a whole. I’ve learned a lot about what being a pastor is, but I’ve also come to realize many things that being a pastor isn’t. Let me share my thoughts with you.
Leadership is one of those pinnacle topics that everyone has their hands on. It doesn’t matter where you work, what you do, or where you plan on going in life—we all lead something. The real question is, how great of a leader are you?
I can only the imagine the intensity and curiosity of Moses as he approached the burning bush in Exodus chapter 3. All throughout scripture we see people encountering God in the most unfathomable ways, but I believe this is one of those defining moments that truly showcases how mysterious and relentless God is when trying to reach His people.

Over the last few years I have noticed that when I put myself into unfamiliar situations, I begin to expose a lot about myself, my leadership, and my relationship with God. Unfamiliar situations will do this to the best of us, and I firmly believe that evaluating the way we handle change is a wonderful way to scale our relationship with Christ.
Recently I shared a post about my cross-country move to a new state, city, and ministry position. And although it’s only been about a week since I have arrived, I can’t begin to explain how much I’ve already learned, grown, and experienced.
