103 How I Became A Pastor, Part 1

In Episode 103, we talk about how I entered the ministry and received my calling to God. Growing up, the church became my second home and family, and I was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to learn about God and his word.

While each of us has a unique calling, we are committed to keeping an open ear to what the Lord has to say. Regardless of how vehemently we reject God's calling, he will sow a seed in our hearts. God's Will will always be carried out.

Tune in now and let's go bigger, better, and deeper!
