Called Beyond the Hampster Wheel of Busyness into Experiencing God’s Love

TEAM:  Imago Christi

SUBJECT:  Pastor Jake  |  Aurora, Colorado

I am a bi-vocational pastor of a small church in Aurora, Colorado. My name is Jake and I was a frayed and exhausted pastor.

What I realized was that the business and busyness of my work and my pastoral life put me into a rut. I led a churn and burn way of life just trying to keep everything afloat. Running on this hamster wheel, I took my focus off of the most important thing, God’s love for me and his invitation to dwell with me eternally.

That’s where I was, when God interrupted my life of crazy-making through the ministry of Imago Christi. I began to participate in a monthly pastors gathering and in one-on-one follow-up coaching. Together these experiences have been instrumental in revitalizing my relationship with Jesus. I am discovering how to journey deeply with God.

One step after another, God used Kevin and the team to lead me back to the extravagant goodness and steadfast love of God. I am learning to trust in His love and to abide with Him through both the mundane and the exciting realities of this bi-vocational life.
