I work at The Chapel in Baton Rouge, LA. One thing that seminary (and life) grew in me was a deep love for the local church.
The Chapel started many moons ago. She began with a desire to reach LSU’s campus and is still doing that. She is on her third senior pastor and has been multisite for the past fourteen years. Somehow, I stumbled into the role of teaching pastor of our second location (the Oaks) about six years ago. If the leadership knew what they were getting into, they wouldn’t have given me the job…and I’m still wondering exactly how I got it. Who gives a 28-year-old the pulpit that was formerly filled by an incredibly mature, well-respected, godly man in his sixties? Crazies, that’s who. And The Chapel is full of them.
I love my church, and I love the church. I hope this blog serves both communities.
