It is my hope that this blog will be an encouragement to those that read it, and that it will provide an opportunity for further discussion on various topics, all with the purpose of apply God’s truth to our every day lives.
A little bit about myself
I am launching a ministry called The Gathering, a nonprofit organization seeking to encourage, support, and share God’s love with young adults in and around Fairmont, MN. Check us out at www.TheGatheringFMT.com .
I was a youth pastor for 9 years in Saint Paul, MN and I am a graduate of Northwestern College in Roseville, MN with a BA in Youth Ministry and an MA Theological Studies. I was ordained in the BGC in January of 2011.
I have been married to my lovely wife Charmaine since 2004, and we have two cats, a relatively normal black cat named Kitty and an abnormal cat named Walter (we’re pretty sure there is something wrong with him…). Charmaine is an awesome graphic designer, and created the banner on the homepage.
Follow me on Twitter, where I post theological quotes, random sports-related thoughts, and humorous jabs at various friends: @bartwhitman
I am available to speak to youth or adult groups, including retreats, small groups, or pulpit supply. Feel free to leave a comment or contact me through www.TheGatheringFMT.com and I will get in touch with you.
