Ashley Madison and Repentance

Ashley Madison and Repentance - PastorServe

The past several months have been filled with heartbreaking stories of well know Christians and their moral failures. Like you, my heart hurt as I read story after story of those who have crossed lines, been caught in their sin and subsequently, according to those close to the situation, repented. It appears that every day…

Trees - What Are You? - PastorServe

Encourage a Pastor – Don’t Miss the Opportunity

Encourage a Pastor - Don't Miss an Opportunity - PastorServe

I could have been there.  I should have been there.  But…I wasn’t there.  It’s the pain and regret of missed opportunities. Have you ever missed an opportunity?  Have you every looked back on a meeting you should have joined, a family gathering you should have made a priority or a pastor you should have encouraged…

Easy Ordination

Come on!  How hard can it be to serve as a pastor?  I’ve run a successful business.  If I can do that – I can most definitely serve as a pastor! I admit it.  This angers me.  I am troubled when someone disparages the role of the pastor.  I am angered when someone speaks about…
