What we’re NOT looking for in a Pastor

I am not going to say these characteristics can’t work for some churches but for our situation its big a dealbreaker for me. 


  1. Pastor who is only a teacher but not a leader/shepherd- John Piper btw is pastor for preaching at his church but we don’t have the manpower to just have a preaching pastor
  2. Someone who talks about ministries he himself doesn’t lead- you don’t have to do everything but in the Marines we were taught that you lead from the front 
  3. Doesn’t place a high priority on doing home visits. I know for AW Tozer he didn’t believe but it was the pastors job but I think knowing your people and caring for them is a must.
