“I am a sinner saved by grace. I follow Jesus, am a husband, father, and pastor. I currently live in Winnemucca, Nevada where I pastor The Redeemed Church – a relatively new church plant. I also co-host The Redeemed Podcast. One of my greatest passions in life is to study and understand God through His Scriptures. As I grow in my understanding, I am thrilled to help further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness.”
Brian Croteau speaks about how the lives and experiences of members of his congregation and broader community have shaped him as a preacher. From the initial impact of a Christian “biker gang” to the ongoing overlapping lives between him and the church members, Brian knows that he is not independent of their influences, and also his preaching is not into a vacuum, but it is to help build the faith, and strengthen the discipleship of the real life people in front of him. It is important to “sticking to the script” and also listening attentively to the doubts, fears and questions of those to whom he is ministering to.
They also speak about the challenges and opportunities of leading musical worship, managing bi-vocational ministry and the seven letters to the seven churches.
“Two things I ask of you, LORD; do not refuse me before I die: Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the LORD?’ Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.
