Why Pastor in a Hard Place?

Tyler wrote an article for The Gospel Coalition in 2018 called "When Ministry Is (Way) Harder Than You Expected":

My story is simple. Like our Lord’s parables about the precious pearl and the hidden treasure (Matt. 13:44–46), my wife and I have concluded that his kingdom and glory are worth it all. We’re not heroes. But we do serve one.
