Nerd Pastor Nate
THE LABORERS ARE FEW
There are many things that I enjoy about being ordained in the United Methodist Church. One of my personal favorite aspects lies in our connection. The UMC is a bit like an umbrella in structure, or perhaps more aptly, like a fisherman's net.
Rather than relying on the structure of the local church alone, the UMC is a connection of conferences and charges across the globe. I could say much more about this and likely will in other conversations, but I mention this to bring up our friends at Crossfire: faith+gaming.
Whenever I was first setting out on my planting journey, I met Rev. David Petty and Russell Dornisch, who were a few years deep in their path of forging a Christian gaming community online. We've had some great conversations and they've helped me grow in my understanding of what this church plant is and can be. While we differ on our vision and process, I'm thankful for the peers that are on this journey of bringing nerds, geeks, and gamers to meet Jesus.
With pleasantries out of the way, I'll keep my words short and direct you to a recent article from Rev. David Petty on his vision and what the past four years has looked like for Crossfire: faith+gaming.
I hope you'll take some time and share some support with their vision as well - because we are in this thing together! I am thankful for the connectiont hat we share and look forward to what our path has in store for us in the coming years.
God loves you. I love you. You matter.
Be boldly blessed, folks!
