Wanted: Peoples' Shepherd

The Spinners are quarantined in the underground bunker and take a break from all the pandemic talk to address a listener question: What should a church be looking for when searching for a new pastor, and how might they go about it?

Of course, a candidate’s online presence can tell much about who he is and how he treats people. What else may be used as reliable indicators of character? What are some ways to assess the prospective pastor’s family life? Does he love and treat his wife and children well? Might the applicant's sermons reveal not only his theology, but also his character and the way he views others? Does he view himself as a shepherd or CEO? The team offers some valuable tips on gathering information about a prospective pastor.
