The calling God has placed on my life is one I never thought I would want much less actually have. God has called me to be a pastor, more specifically a lead pastor of a church. Quite the task but one I feel God is preparing me for and has given me all of the tools necessary to do. The calling to be a pastor is not one I question any longer. Summer 2010 was when I felt God call me to one day be a pastor. I fought and argued with God over that calling for a couple of months and finally surrendered because I could not fight it any longer. Later on this was all confirmed by family members and friends once I began to talk about it. It was a settled issue. Ive been in some type of ministry for almost seven years now.

Alex loves Jesus but he is not in the ministry which is amazing for me. I can go with him and just talk about life, sports, outdoors, and go do something and just have fun. It is such a blessing to have my life surrounded by
