Introduction I am the son of a Biblical preacher (Kent Kolstad). My parents, along with my wife, and john macarthur are a few of my "modern day heroes." I've been blessed beyond measure in this life. The Lord has uniquely used many "clay pots" to help mold and conform me into Christ's image (Col 1:28-29). Namely My folks; pastors wragg; hardy; flatt; macarthur; ramey; and hall; the prof. phil johnson; my seminary teachers and some other really great people from TMC, FBC, & GCC. I have been married for 7 wonderful years now. My wife Andrea is my most precious earthly treasure. She is a woman of faith and one of the finest Biblical counselors i know. Evelyn Marie Kolstad was born on 5/23. She is daddy's little girl. Our son Jude MacArthur was born on Thanksgiving! Our youngest daughter Anna Deborah Kolstad is our pride and joy. I graduated from TMC in 2001 and TMS in 2005. I currently serve as the senior pastor of the First Baptist Church. I served as an ast pastor in Carmel, IN with a tremendous group of saints prior to my current ministry. This blog IN NO WAY represents any/all the views of my church/friends!
Interests My wife Andrea, my family and friends, the gospel, theology, preaching, and sports.
