Searching for a New Pastor: A Brief Theology

I am now in my third successive church searching for a new pastor. On this topic, I’ve seen (up close) the very good, the bad, and the very ugly.

This got me thinking….  If I had never been a part of a church that was forced to search for new staff – and my only source for knowing what to do was the Bible (what a novel idea) – what would I find in the Bible that would help me understand (1) what a Search Team should know, and (2) what a Pastor should be?

I would totally love to hear your thoughts. Agree with what I’ve written? Disagree?

I’ve attached the document in, both, a Word file and PDF file.
