the journey begins
Welcome to something new. My name is Matt, and I am a pastor in a little town you’ve never heard of.
I’m in my 20’s, married with a baby girl, and am trying to figure this whole “being a pastor” thing out. I’ll probably never be a Billy Graham, Bill Hybels, Andy Stanley, or Dallas Willard. But I love the Lord, and I know that it’s forgettable, unknown pastors like me that will change the world.
How so? When someone gets sick in my community, I visit them. Not Billy. When someone questions their faith, I will listen to them. Not Andy. This country is full of nobody’s like me–who God marvelously chooses to use to build his flock.
Oh, and I’m also a Millennial, and I won’t apologize for it. We have our flaws, but this is the generation that God has placed me and this generation speaks the language I speak.
I love movies. I love cups of coffee. I love video games. I despise Christian radio. I tweet. I instagram. And I’m excited to see how God will draw this generation to his heart.
