A blog and podcast for pastors committed to faithfully shepherding God's flock.



Every day I get emails, postcards, newsletters, and magazines touting the latest trends and success stories in the world of ministry. In this pastor world of statistics and suggestions, this blog  seeks to provide encouragement and insight to the Biblical call to shepherd the people of God. The goal is to help you be faithful and fruitful, which means you may never be popular. I am aware that creating a site and a podcast for others to interact with seems counter-productive to the message.

This blog and podcast is a part of my personal effort to stay focused on shepherding the congregation where I am a pastor. I welcome your thoughts, insights, and experiences here. This is not just my spot on the web to insert my voice, it is a place for you to join in, learn, and contribute to the encouragement of other leaders who week in and week out preach, pray, counsel, visit, and minister to the local church.

By His Grace,

Rob Armstrong, Sr. Pastor 

Harrisburg Baptist Church in Tupelo, MS
