The teaching pastor who took over for controversial author and Pastor Rob Bell at Mars HIll Bible Church in Grandville, Michigan, announced Sunday that he will soon be leaving the church and explained that “being a pastor is not really who I am.”

Kent Dobson, who assumed the teaching pastor position at the 12,000-member megachurch when Bell left the congregation and moved to California in 2012, told the congregation during Sunday’s service that he will be stepping down from his role in the coming months to pursue a “greater mystery.”

He told the congregants that he has never felt right serving in the role of pastor because he has always been “drawn to the edges of religion and faith and God.” He has even stated a few times that he doesn’t know “what we mean by God anymore?”
