I am Mike Osborne, Pastor of Discipleship at a Presbyterian church in Orlando, Florida, and author of Surviving Ministry: How to Weather the Storms of Church Leadership. I’ve been married to Suzy, my college sweetheart, since 1976. We have four children and eleven grandkids. Besides the grace of God, some of my loves are racquetball, cycling, reading, going to new places, the beach, history, music, movies, barbecue, and pecan pie. This blog is about things that have helped me find joy in being a pastor. It hasn’t always been easy (read My Story). Happy pastors are an endangered species. Be one of them.
“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” (1 Timothy 6:12, ESV)
