I first heard of Pastor Crawford Loritts through a series titled Stepping Up. The series was aimed towards calling men to live a courageous life in the Lord. What Pastor Loritts spoke about in the series touched the hearts of men behind prison walls in Teague, Texas. We delighted in his teachings and his fervor for the gospel message. Ever since then, he has been one of my favorites to listen to. He’s as genuine, sincere, and humble as a man of God should be. You won’t hear him call attention to himself or strive for position; you will hear him point us to the Lord. In this episode, we discuss a leadership that is close to home; the leadership mantle that God calls men to pick up and live by. No matter how we may want to arrange our lives, our choices make a clear path for our destiny. Choose truth, joy, faith, community, and service, for God has called you into His family!
Jason Paredes is the Lead Pastor of Fielder Church, a multi-campus church in the middle of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex with a growing congregation and a God-sized vision to serve the community and beyond. Ever since I first heard him preach, I’ve wanted to find out more from him about praying and fasting, which is such an integral part of his Gospel-centered ministry. Jason is also a husband and father (of six!) expectantly waiting to hear from God as he leads his family and church through 2020. He’s got some great insight and wisdom to share with us today!
