Searching for the Perfect Pastor - Book 3

From the introduction:

There is much written about pastors, particularly their role and duties toward God’s people. Yet, nearly all of it is addressed to ministerial students or pastors. On the other hand, virtually nothing is written about the member’s role and duties toward the pastor. 

The Bible is the God-given authority for all matters pertaining to life and godliness (2 Peter 3:1-11). Since this is true, the Bible is the standard against which to evaluate a pastor’s call, character and competency. It is also the authority on a congregant’s service to his pastor and other church members.

This volume, Searching for the Perfect Pastor Book 3, is taken from my original book, The Perfect Pastor and from notes that I teach in church leadership classes as well in a doctoral course at New Geneva Seminary in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Like the original book, this is designed to be a tool. Church members will be better equipped to choose a pastor, to relate to him, and to support him. Likewise, pastors will find helpful ways to relate to the varieties of people in their church. Hopefully, for the better.

Specifically, Book 3 of the series, Searching for the Perfect Pastor answers the broad question about what a pastor should do as a minister in the local church, at least according to God’s Word. It addresses the many hats he wears and the things he does. It also outlines the priorities for ministry that God has for him. Further, his job description that comes from Scripture is put forth, as well as what the core meaning for ministry really is. Finally, the last chapter provides a definition and description of one who is called to be an ordained pastor in a local church, which ought to help you identify one when you see him.

This book is also a story.  It’s about a fictional pastor named Dan, and his family.  It tells the realistic, practical, humorous, exasperating real-life experiences of a pastor. Dan attempts to apply the Bible’s requirements, roles and responsibilities of every pastor to his own strengths and shortcomings and to a diverse, and sometimes difficult, body of believers.
