The Millennial Pastor - My Book

I wrote a book. It's about my first year as a Lead Pastor and all the fun (and not so fun) lessons I learned along the way. It's called:

The Millennial Pastor: That One Time They Gave Me a Church at 28

The fund I am hoping to raise will pay for the publishing of the book through Westbow Press. While looking into putting some of my memoirs into a bound book for my family, I incidentally shared my phone number. To my surprise they called me the next day and we have been talking ever since. Unknown authors such as myself have little to no chance of being picked up by big name publishers so to get a book published, it is common to go through an assisted self-publishing group like Westbow. So that's what I'm doing.

After nearly a year of talking with them and sharing we reached a deal. $850 will help me pay for the costs of getting my manuscript edited, copywritten, registered and ultimately published. Once the process is done it will be available wherever books are sold.

Help me tell my story. Help me share why I haven't quit on church. Help me share why I would rather get my hands dirty and do something about the things I don't like instead of sit idly by complaining about them. Help me share my story of the struggles millenials must go through to even attempt to lead in a church/ministry setting. Help me share a story that really is not my own, but one that shows how God is still at work and can use even the most unlikely of individuals to do the work of building His kingdom.


For the record, if I do in fact raise enough money, or even surpass my goal, I will use any additional funds to get a better publishing package. Currently my package does not include things like eBooks or a bookstore return policy. The amount I need to raise is for the bare bones publishing package. Thank you!
