This is the Blog of Pastor Matthew Harris in Adrian Missouri. I am married to my beautiful wife, Michelle, and I have four grown sons.
I love the outdoors. I enjoy fishing, hunting, and metal detecting. If you do not find me doing one of these things then I am probably running, taking a nap, watching a movie, reading, or serving the Lord in some way.
I was raised in a Christian home where my dad served as an elder in the local Church. Personally, I became a follower of Christ at the age of eight and I have tried to live as a faithful follower ever since. That lead me to Ozark Christian College in Joplin Missouri and finally into full-time Christian ministry. I have been a preacher for over 27 years in Missouri, Indiana, Iowa, Alaska, and now back in Missouri. I preach at Adrian Christian Church where I have been since July 1, 2014.
During my time in the preaching ministry, I have come to learn one incontrovertible truth – Everyone needs a second chance sometimes. I firmly believe that our second chance is found in Jesus. On this blog, I want to share my thoughts on life, failure, marriage, church, and anything else that helps people in their walk with Jesus.
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
