Ministry, leadership, discipleship, the local church and the deep riches of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
Hi! My name is Jim Drake. My wife Miranda and I have been married for 27 years. We have three children. Kyla, our oldest is serving in the US Navy. She and her husband, Josh, have given us our first grandson, Kent. Our middle child, Katelyn is an Elementary Education major at Concord University. Our son, CJ, is a Business major at Bluefield College.
I have the blessing of serving as Pastor of Parkview Baptist Church in Bluefield, VA. My passions are expository preaching, leadership and discipleship.
I am writing this blog primarily out of my experience as a 20 year US Air Force veteran, a former church planting catalyst missionary and a pastor. I trust it will be of some benefit to you.
