By Faith Episode #13: Kyle Hoover on Endurance in Work and Ministry

Each week this season on By Faith I’m talking to someone who is walking forward by faith, many of them through difficult circumstances. We’re asking the question, “How does God meet us in our deepest, darkest pain and how does He turn that pain into beauty?”

Today my guest on the show is my very own husband, Kyle. You heard him interview me in Episode #7, but now I’ve turned the microphone on him! Kyle and I have been married 18 years, we have three boys together, and we’ve been partners in vocational ministry since year one of our marriage. We started in college ministry together at a church in College Station, Texas, working with students from our own alma mater, Texas A&M. In 2008, we moved to Charlottesville, Virginia in order to pursue God’s call on our lives to plant a church. If you just did the math, you know that we’re celebrating 10 years as a church this year.
I’ve watched my husband grow into his role as a lead pastor, preacher, and shepherd caring for the sheep. He is gifted for what he does, and he does it well and with deep integrity. In our conversation, you’ll hear us talk about what a pastor actually does and what the challenges of his work are.

You most likely aren't a pastor, but I want you to listen from the perspective of your own work. No matter who you are or whether or not you get paid, you work, and work is both rewarding and challenging, no matter what it is. Kyle shares with us the perspective he keeps that helps him endure in work that can at times be challenging and discouraging. I hope what he shares is helpful to you as you work by faith, believing that God is using it for his glory.
