I am Pastor Jerry Wirtley, an ordained pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Social media, spirituality, music (listening and creating), worship and following Jesus/God are among my biggest passions. I blog about them here.

I love God and helping others to love and follow the one who has created us. I pray that the musings you find here will help you to follow God more closely and these post will enrich your life and help you to dig deeper into the faith that helps all of us live a richer and fuller life!

Here’s a little more about me.

Here is a link to my blog which has a daily devotional based on the RCL daily lectionary from the ELCA, as well as other thoughts of mine.

Ramblings of asacredrebel is my podcast. Listen to me talk about theology and other topics.

Treehouse Ministries is the campus ministry for Texas A&M and Blinn Colleges in Bryan and Brenham Texas. This is where I am currently serving.

Tool Box For Faith is a confirmation curriculum I helped create with other pastors in the ELCA and it is free for you to use.

Sermons are the main part of being a pastor. This is a link to my Vimeo page where there are sermon videos from many years ago.

St. John’s Little Suamico is a congregation I pastored for 6 years. Here is a link to sermons I preached there.
