I’m in the homestretch. Baby showers have commenced. Books have been read. Nursery is painted.
Fatherhood is bearing down on me as we are about 2 months away from the due date.
So I need your help for two reasons:
I think Rookie Pastor works because we learn from one another. And I could definitely could use some teaching in this area of being a dad, especially as it relates to also being in ministry.
Not only am I ignorant I am a bit freaked out. We all know the crazy pastor kids, the angry pastor kids, and even the weird pastor kids. Compared to the first two I’ll gladly take the third option. Ideally though I’d like some kids who love Jesus and don’t resent their parents or the local church. That’s what I’m praying for anyway.
Good vs Great
I love writing this blog. It is life-giving, encouraging, and a ministry. As good as this is it absolutely does not compare to the greatness and importance of being a father. With our son on the way I have to prioritize some things in life and the goodness of Rookie Pastor comes after my own time with God, family, and ministry in the local church.
So to coach me up, help in the transition (particularly right after he gets here), and for the benefit of others I am looking for contributors to this new series called Rookie Pastor, Rookie Dad.
I am looking for male and female perspectives on raising kids (at all stages) and being a pastor. Long or short, general or specific, I’d be happy to post it.
Comment or send me an email: josh(at)rookiepastor(dot)com and I’ll give you more details or guidance if you are looking for more direction.
