This is the Blog of Pastor Matthew Harris in Adrian Missouri. I am married to my beautiful wife, Michelle, and I have three wonderful boys … and then there is that other one:) OK. I have four terrific boys (and thanks to Brian Regan for the joke.)
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 eating, taking a nap, watching a movie or at one of my kids sporting events.
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 24 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 sometime. 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.
