i’m about to marry a youth pastor… (part 2)

My fiance, Allie, wanted to write a guest post describing what she’s excited about in terms of marrying a youth pastor. Last week, she wrote about what she’s skeptical of, this week, she’s going for the positive. Check it out:


I’m excited about:

I loved my youth pastor’s wifegrowing up. She held small groups in their home and I always felt honored when she was the leader that stayed in my room on trips. I don’t remember if we had anything in common. All I remember is that she loved Jesus and I was trying to do that.

I am completely willing to take on that roll. I am so excited to walk beside these students and be who I am. If I feel like God is leading me to start a small group with junior high girls, then I am there. If I feel like God is calling me to start up a community outreach event with students, then I am there.

But I am also excited to pray for them on my own. I am excited to be there for Adam and watch a basketball game on T.V. when he’s worn out after a lock-in. I am excited to live my life alongside the church. The Body of Christ. No matter what church Adam and I find ourselves, our lives should be consistent. I am excited to be a consistent presence in the students’ lives, Adam’s life, and the church’s life.

I am excited to be who God has called me to be, no matter what profession my husband takes on.

  1. The post that PBJ has put on your site is great. Sounds like she will be a great wife to you Adam…

    Keep pursuing her long after the wedding is over. Nurture her spirit and love her no matter the circumstance. Enjoy each other forever!
