This is a different post than usual. I had an interview with retired pastor, Roger Spahr. Roger had served as a District Superintendent and had had success in recruiting pastors. Roger shares his thoughts on what he looks for in a potential pastor as well as some valuable advice for churches in need of a pastor.
Last week I looked at the cost difference between the United Methodists and the Global Methodists. This week I’m looking at the benefits. This was a difficult one as the GMC is only about four months old. They have more promises than proven benefits. I still did make an effort with what I’m aware of. I hope it helps!
Since the announcement that the Global Methodist denomination, I’ve had a number of pastors reach out to me and ask what this means for their church. Usually these are pastors of churches leaning towards leaving the UMC. Here’s what I’ve been sharing with them. The video gives some advice on what your church leadership can be doing now.
