Church and Parachurch: Friends or Foes? Are the church and parachurch friends or foes? Personally, I think that is a form of emotional abuse. To prevent this I believe its well within the rights of the candidate to ask for a follow up contact within a set time frame. We will save time and money and present to the church candidates for face-to-face interviews. In other words, we do all the calling, back ground checks, criminal checks, weeding out people who do not meet the qualifications of the church. When we finish with a candidate, we know all there is to know and we are confident that candidate can fill the role.
The Pastor and his Staff, Part 2 : 9Marks
Great article. I think churches getting back to the pastor in a timely manner is key.

Knowing the steps either way or having a timeline is good to know. I would disagree with the scenario you suggest. However, toojuch prayer is involved to hire out the process. Look how many leave after less than 2 years. Pray is a great part of our mission and most our our pastors stay much longer than the average. Also, God has given me 20 years of hiring people as an Executive Pastor at Fellowship. God can and does work through me in this process. Remember that we are merely walking beside the search team or church staff.
We bring the best candidates and THEY choose who will be the next staff member. Have you ever had an experience with a professional search organization? What you shared are great suggestions! Preston: I have not had experience. Your statement about pastors staying less than two years against the longevity of your pastors may be a little skewed. First, the number of years includes denominations that move pastors around. Secondly, smaller churches 80 or less can barely afford a pastor let alone a hiring service. I am sure your service does a great job. Longevity does not necessarily dictate a right or wrong hiring of a pastor, though we both would like to see pastors stay longer.
Pastor search committees are the greatest way that the failure of congregationalism shows itself in the SBC. Tom, I hear great things from the Albany area. I hope your current pastor knows of your desire, sees your call to ministry, and is actively looking for you. If you are embarrassed to be SBC you, you may need to look to another denomination. Endure this time of waiting and use it as an opportunity to grow in Him. Thanks to all for the great responses. I especially appreciate the give and take between you.
