A pastor on FJ? And I thought I've seen it all.

Hi.
#2 to #1 - tfixari (08/23/2013) [-]
hello, friend!

i should clarify: i'm an assistant pastor. i don't have my M. Div. yet. but yeah we exist.

So, what's the life of a pastor like? You seem to be a pretty cool guy with a good portion of humor when it comes to religion.

i mean in this day and age you HAVE to have a sense of humor about it, right?
to start, i will say that life as a pastor comes with a high level of scrutiny. there's definitely this expectation that we ought to be blameless people. and that's not really accurate considering that we're human beings just like everyone else, but there is some merit to that. we ARE supposed to live up to a high standard of morals because we're such prominent representatives of the faith. so that's one of the hardest parts of it.

but here's what makes it all worth it:
1. i get to connect with people. i've met so many amazing people who love God and love other people. it's such a great job in that way.
2. i get to tell people the greatest news they'll ever hear. preaching to people and telling them about the love of God is what i live for. that's why i love my job. i get opportunities to help people turn their lives around and live for Jesus. it's the best thing in the world!

keep in mind i've only scratched the surface. i've only been in this job for a year. most of it i've been studying under my mentor who is the lead pastor. i'm only 21 and haven't started seminary yet. i guess you could say that i'm only a "padawan" in terms of pastoral ministry (my mentor called me his padawan once. it was awesome).

sorry that i can't stay and chat more. i'm technically at work right now in the church. i should be working. but i can tell you more later if you like.

oh and one last thing: thanks for being so cool. you seem like a cool guy too.

I'd love to hear more later.

Have fun at work, and don't let anyone tell you what you're doing is wrong. It helps people getting their life on track, and that's what counts.
