I am a pastor. I am a barista. So that makes me a Pastorista. I love doing what I do. On any given day my world as a pastor and a barista collide beautifully. I encounter people everyday from every walk of life and I get to hear their stories. In some cases I get to be part of their story. In every case they become part of mine.
I am a firm believer that you can pastor a church and you can still have interaction with those outside of your community of faith. I am a firm believer in taking ministry to the market place, over expecting folks to come for ministry within the walls of the local church.
I’m challenged daily to know what I believe and why I believe. I’m forced to confront others who are as equally passionate about their belief system as I am. I have other challenges like finding hours and hours of study time for sermon prep and hospital visits and phone calls. Sometimes I drop the ball.
This is the story of my life as a Pastorista.
