About Payte

Hello! Nice to meet you. Thank you for visiting!

To provide a quick rundown, most of my efforts currently include being a husband, pastoring a church, working at a bank, disc golfing (if it’s nice out), drinking black coffee, reading, and blogging. We reside in Kansas. I’m 25 years old.

The church I pastor at is named CrossPoint. We are Southern Baptist. Our church web site is crosspointnow.net.

Hopefully, as you browse around my personal site here, it will reveal more about who I am. I graduated from Liberty University with a BA in Religion (Magna Cum Laude) in 2014. I studied in this field because I have a passion for the Word of God—the Bible—and desire to teach it the rest of my days.

What you need to know upfront is that I am about Jesus Christ. Rather than promoting myself, I strive to promote Christ. Ultimately, I hope you see him—not me. I cannot do much for you. I’m imperfect, but point to the One who is perfect and able to satisfy.

What I hope to do is encourage you. I hope the articles, videos, and materials on paytej.com can encourage you in the truth of the gospel. This is my mission, friends. My social media and blogging has one purpose in mind—to encourage you in Christ.

The Internet is a fascinating privilege. I use it to connect with people from all over the world and communicate about Christ. So, let’s connect. If you would like to know more about partnering with us in God’s work, visit the Partner page!

“Let’s seek the truth. Let’s share in Christ.”
