Greetings Everyone! My name is Bryan Kizer. I am the founder and pastor of Christlike Ministries NWA. The seed for Christlike Ministries NWA was planted in my heart in 2001, but it didn’t break ground until 2012. I started Christlike Ministries NWA right on Facebook with the desire to use the gift of writing God gave me to write good, solid bible-based messages to help my readers to begin, develop, and maintain their relationship with God.
After 6 years of doing this I’ve come to realize that what I have is an online community of believers all over the world, and that I’ve really been more of a christian blogger than the pastor of a church. My church doesn’t have a building it is people all over the world who hopefully read my posts because they desire to know God deeper and more intimately. The neat thing is today many of my friends online now call me Pastor B, and while I don’t really exhibit all the characteristics of a good pastor or shepherd it’s nice to have people who are learning from the messages I write, and the gratification I have today is being asked to be the staff pastor for an organization that helps veterans. It’s a testament to me that people truly are being helped by what I’ve been doing over the last 6 years.
So, I’ve begun the task of re-branding everything to just simply be named Pastor B’s Ministry removing from it Christlike Ministries NWA because I no longer feel like it truly represents what I’ve been doing. I believe Pastor B’s Ministry is a little more appropriate, and perhaps a little better reflection of what my ministry has become which is being a Christian blogger and a social media pastor. I don’t own the rights to NWA because it stands for Northwest Arkansas, and since most of what I do is blog and write on Facebook I don’t really feel that it needs an organizational name like Christlike Ministries. I feel like Pastor B’s Ministry brings it a little closer to the kind of relationship I have with my followers, fans, friends, and family members.
While I’m going to be making cosmetic changes what isn’t going to change is the fact that you’re still going to be getting good, solid, bible-based messages aimed at helping you to begin, develop, and maintain your relationship with God. I’m going to continue writing messages here on Facebook as well as Pastor B’s Blog.
I will be leaving the Christlike Ministries NWA Blog the way it is for now because I just paid to renew the rights to the domain name, but next year I’ll be changing the name and domain name of the main blog to Pastor B’s Ministry. I believe that God is directing me to make these changes. I know it’s going to be a lot of work, but I believe that making these changes will better reflect what I’ve been doing over the last 6 years. I hope and pray for your continued prayers, patience, and support. I hope that you’ll continue to follow along, that you’ll read the posts, and most of all that you are having a deeper, more intimate relationship with God. I still consider all of you family, and from now on that’s what I’m going to call you…Pastor B’s Family.
The last thing I want to say in closing is…THANK YOU. Thank you to each and every one of you that has made the Christlike Ministries NWA Family (and now Pastor B’s Family) what it is today. If it wasn’t for all of you there wouldn’t be a need to re-brand anything because it’s likely there wouldn’t be a ministry to re-brand. If it wasn’t for all of you I wouldn’t have been doing this long enough to figure out what I’m doing is different from what I believed I was starting in 2012.
So…thank you. Thank you to every one of you that has put a check or money order in the mail. Thank you to every one of you that likes or comments or shares my posts. Thank you for an amazing 6 years, and thank you in advance for your support going forward. I am truly blessed with GREAT family members, and I hope y’all know that I really do love each and every one of you.
