I’m Dave Claassen, the pastor of a church in Toledo, Ohio. I graduated from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois, in 1975 and have served my first and only church since then, having finished 37 years of ministry. I have often said that I pastor one of the slowest growing churches in the country; sometimes growing backwards! This blog is to be a gathering place for those who want to focus on where their heart is in ministry as a pastor. Christ is interested in spiritual cardiology when it comes to His pastors! Let’s help each other stay heart healthy!
