Be it woman or man, if they are single pastors I would not attend their church.
Why? Because I believe in this particular leadership position, one ought to have a partner to be an example for its members that; love and heterosexual relationships is God’s ultimate plan for man.
The marriage and love between a pastor and his or her husband or wife, should be so igniting that they’re fostering relationships of their single memberships and encouraging marriage in the long run.
If a couple is happily married that energy will reflect on the growth of its members, if the leadership couple has issues within, that congregation will not grow.
A minister should be concerned about the WHOLE man, not just delivering God’s Word every Sunday, collecting an offering and going about his business. While in the meantime, you have single men and women sitting up in church secretly yearning for more.
Does your church have a single’s ministry? Does your church have social activities geared toward singles? Does your pastor even discuss relationships from onset to maturity? Is your pastor even concerned about the single adults in his ministry? And lastly, how many couples have your pastor’s married this year?
A church without goals is not concerned about souls!!!!
I hope this answers the question from one of my loyal CEO readers.
