The Mission of Pastor Unlikely
There are happy family pictures on this page. My family is truly wonderful now. The joy and peace in my life amaze me every day. But it was not always this way.
I was not a believer for much of my adult life. Sin almost destroyed me.
I was exhausted from striving and struggling with life. I was an alcoholic just like my father and his father before him and I had no hope. I did not think I could change. I didn’t believe life in Christ was possible for a regular guy like me. I thought that was only for the Biblical heroes and special people of the faith like Billy Graham. I was powerless and knew it. Powerlessness over Sin? Learn from the Seven Sons of Sceva
It was only through the miraculous power of Jesus that I was saved. I went to my knees a hopeless alcoholic imprisoned by my sin. I stood up minutes later healed. I was set free. I haven’t thought of drinking since.
Jesus changed everything. No one else could do what He did. Trust me, I tried everything else first. It was only when I met Jesus I was reborn. For more on being reborn read What does it Mean to be a Born Again Christian?
I have been determined to follow Him to the utmost ever since.
Fighting for Your Joy
I didn’t go from totally lost to living a mature joyful Christian life in a moment. It took research, Bible study, and discipleship. It took willingness to face your fears, failings, and strongholds. It also took lots of tears and setbacks.
Powerful forces come against us when we seek to live a sold-out life for Christ. But I promise you it is both possible for you and worth it. You have to start by figuring out what you really want from Jesus. What Do You Really Want from Jesus?
Do you trust God to deliver on His promises? Do You Really Trust God?
I slowly rebuilt my life in Jesus. I started off totally dedicated to alcohol, loss, and the world. I have been pursuing Jesus ever since.
God prepared me for the process involved. It is one of daily sifting through all of the erroneous doctrines, lame arguments, and gimmicks Satan inflitrated into the Church.
The greatest enemy of the church is not persecution but deception. It is those who seek to rob you of the awesome life that Jesus promises you.
Pastor Unlikely exists to help you along the same path. I write to encourage you in the journey and help you avoid the pitfalls.

Jesus has taught me so much during that time. I want to share it with you.
So are you searching? Are you living a life that is not satisfying and wonder if there is something more? Do you know that things are not what they should be?
Come, sit, and stay for a while.
I understand what you are going through. I was there and would love to share what helped me out of those
years. The whole world can make sense for the first time.
