Pastor Don Zlaty
I certainly did not plan to become a pastor. I lived a completely different life and by a completely different set of rules before God called me. In truth, I believed that I had too much filth and past dirt on me for God to ever forgive let alone believing that someone with my sort of past could be what God was looking for at that particular time. God is funny that way. He loves where others fail to. He forgives when we find it impossible to find forgiveness even for ourselves.
I can remember the day that I allowed myself to step into my relationship with Jesus Christ. The pain and many masks that I wore to protect myself from the world around me shattered and I saw for the first time what God sees when He looks at me. Jesus knows I am broken and He is fully aware that my life is a symphony of badly tuned instruments and sour played notes and yet He is ever patient in His love for me.
I chose to serve Jesus because I believe that there are many people in this world that believe they are beyond hope, beyond love, beyond His forgiveness. My prayer, mission and greatest passion is to introduce any and all of them to the amazing love and joy that I received through my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
This is why I became a Christian, it is why I follow Jesus and it is why I became a pastor. My wonderful wife is another blessing to me and I simply could not see this ministry in the same way without her. Her faith in God and in what He can do and has done for us inspires me daily.
Jesus’ message is one of love and hope. If you would like to hear more about this, stop in sometime and say hello. I will be glad to share that message with you.
