Tempering the Work-Driven Man

I have always been a task-oriented person, especially if I am interested in the task. I like my brain to be constantly at work. It is a real struggle to slow down and pull away from things like blogging, sermon/church preparation, etc. I, like many other men, want tangible success. Are there any men who read this blog who would be transparent enough to tell how you learned to balance life? As a hospice chaplain, pastor, husband, and father to a multitude, I want to achieve that balance. Alright men…1, 2, 3, GO!

Author: Matthew Winters (The Comeback Pastor)

Born and raised in Portsmouth, VA, I eventually landed in upstate SC because when God calls I move. I gave my life to Christ in 1987 and surrendered to the call to ministry in 1997. I am a three-time graduate from Liberty University and Theological Seminary: BS in Religion (2003), the MA in Religion (Leadership concentration - 2006), and the Master of Divinity (Pastoral Ministries - 2013). I have served as a worship leader and senior pastor in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia since 1996. After experiencing a divorce, God graciously gave me my wife, Jennifer, whom I married in September 2015. Between the two of us, we have 6 children. I am the Lead/Founding Pastor of Overcomers Church in Walhalla, SC, a church plant that is helping those who have been overcome by life to become Overcomers in Christ. Jennifer and I both love people and long to see them enter into a relationship with Christ and walk in the power of His Spirit. I pray that these thoughts I share will challenge and inspire you to greater heights and deeper depths for the glory of Christ.
