Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Back to a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

comment What is the “gospel” supposed to mean?
This is an okay question - a little bit basic, but I understand why you raised it. Your answer is good, too - and we do encourage answering your own question - although typically the bar is "Did you need to do some research to answer it." I'm really liking your quality overall, so this may almost be a little beneath you :)

comment Which denominations follow prosperity theology?
By and large, this tends to be associated with more Pentecostal and Charismatic denominations, especially in South America, although the term itself is so perjorative as to not be used.

Welcome to C.SE! This is a good insight, although I will suggest that oddly enough, insight is not normally what we're after :) Ideally, we look for sourced answers - but this one is pretty good and directly answers the question. I'd invite you to check out the help center to see how we're different.
