Pastor Articles

You are called to care for and guide those in your care, but when it comes to the warriors in your church, you often feel ill-equipped to speak into their lives. The warriors around you followed a calling too. Theirs is a calling to defend and protect, but their defenses often seem to keep you at arm’s length.  The challenges you face have been face by others. Their stories and the lessons they’ve learned along the way can become your road map to a successful journey.
