The longer I am in pastoral ministry, the more I grow in my conviction that expositional, shepherd-preaching truly is God’s primary, ordained method to feed and nurture his people. As a preaching pastor in Christ's Church, I have grown in my desire above all else to be...

One of the challenges pastors regularly face is trying to get people connected into true community in the church. I know it is one of the things I think about all the time. There are few things that burden me more than the thought that someone in our church doesn't fee...
