Recently it seems that God has laid on my heart to do something in ministry. I’ve been bouncing around to various churches and enjoying the worship and fellowship, but I haven’t gotten my hands dirty in a long while. When I was younger I wanted to be a youth pastor, but I don’t think I had the real world experience required to be a good youth pastor. I needed time to develop spiritually and emotionally, but now I think I have reached a point in life where I would be a good youth pastor.
So I Googled “Youth Pastor Job Openings” not knowing where to start and found www.churchstaffing.com. I was delighted to find a small church that only wanted a part time youth pastor. Without hesitation I sent a quick email outlining my qualifications and my desire to reach youth for Christ. I really relate well with teens, actually, I find that I relate well with humans in general and this would be a great opportunity to start a path in life that will really mean something.
When I was 5 or 6 and the principal of a school asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I said, “A Preacher”. My parents always hoped that some day that would come true, and maybe, just maybe… it might.
So say a quick prayer for me followed by a few long prayers and some fasting. I’m redirecting things in my life and I want to make some changes. We’ll see where God is taking me.
