About McKay Caston

I began McKayCaston.com in 2006 as a place to think out loud and post pics of my family. 

Over time, the blog became a space to share content as I began to morph from a pastor who preaches and teaches to a pastor who writes.

Eventually, I discovered that I have a deep longing to help people. Specifically, I want to help people come alive to the beauty, wonder, and transforming power of God's grace, in order to abide in Jesus as our perfect and only righteousness as we live all of life in view of the cross. 

This is why McKayCaston.com exists and why I think that you will like being part of this online community. You just might come alive the grace of God in Jesus! 🙂
