What Judicatories and Churches Seek in a New Senior Pastor

Churches typically want their new clergy to be a mid-30s male, married with young children. He should possess 15 years experience, be able to fit well within the existing culture, be willing to affirm and support people as they are, and not have an agenda for change. Judicatories know that most people entering ministry are 45 years or older, 50 percent are women, and many are single, with or without children. Also, judicatories wish churches sought innovative, creative, entrepreneurial clergy capable of strategic and visionary leadership for renewal and growth. These are a few of the discrepancies in interest and perspective uncovered through interviews conducted with judicatory executives about what churches look for in new pastors.
