Back in July I wrote about the 5 blogs that have shaped me the most. They have shaped me as someone in seminary, someone in ministry, and someone who blogs. I thought it would be great to learn more from these men, so I contacted them all and was able to ask some of them some questions.

Carlos blogs at Ragamuffin Soul, and has quite the following. His blog is incredible. Great content, and a great community of people from all walks of life. He is the Director of Service Programming at Buckhead Church in Atlanta, which is connected with North Point Community Church. Before working at Buckhead, Carlos was the worship pastor at Sandals Church in Riverside, California.
