Chase Replogle

My name is Chase Replogle. I’m a pastor at Bent Oak Church, a freelance web designer, and a writer. This podcast is my journey to better understand the unique vocation of pastor and writer.

I’ll do my best to be honest about the challenges and struggles of writing and hopefully, we can both learn along the way.
