About Jim

blog to help followers

Hi, my name is Jim Wolstenholm. Most people just call me Jim!  I retired from the U.S. Navy in 2004 and have been pastoring since 1999. Even though I’ve had thousands of hours of leadership training, I want to learn to be a better follower!

My mission: I help people follow Jesus so they can live the abundant life and change their world.

Jesus wants you to live an abundant life. He clearly promised this in John 10:10! To live at any level below abundance is to live at a lower level than Jesus wants for you! I want to help you!

I believe a great follower can change the world. Jesus was a great follower of his Father. The apostle Paul was a great follower. And didn’t they change the world? Don’t forget that Jesus promised us that we would do greater things than he did! (John 14:12)

On my blog, I am working through the very things we need to become great followers. We live in an age of accelerating change. That makes me uncomfortable at times. But when I can follow someone who is confident, strong and encouraging I find confidence, strength and encouragement. Jesus is the one I follow!

I want to help you learn to be a better follower. At least once a week, a new post is added to my blog to help you navigate the challenges of following Jesus in our changing culture. I invite you to join me on this journey. These posts have been very helpful and popular with my subscribers:
