This Atheist Still Needs His Pastor
Chris Stedman, Huffington Post
It felt good to pick my own pastor.
He was young--so much so that nearly everyone called him "Pastor Doogie" --gracious, eloquent and kind, with a biting sense of humor that showed he didn't take anything too seriously (besides the love of God). After meeting and working with him on a Teens Encounter Christ retreat, I loved Pastor Matthew so much that my friend and I decided to become members at his church.
