An Open Letter to Pastors

Dear Pastor,

I have been where you have been. For eighteen years I served as a pastor at churches in various parts of this country. From small churches to the “mega-church”, I rose the Evangelical ladder to success and then back down again to obscurity. It’s been an honor to stand in “the pulpit” of one of the largest churches in America and a privilege to lead a youth group of only 25 or so week in and week out for five years. I have spoken at camps, retreats, church growth conferences, run my own non-profit ministry, written materials that have been published, and taught church leaders all over the country.

I believe I have had all of the experiences so that I could communicate to you whereever you are right now.

Pastor… your job is tough
