Are You Interviewing for a Pastor Position?
If you are, Thom Rainer at Church Central has several suggestions for questions you should ask before you say yes. If you are a finalist for the position, they already have asked you numerous questions during a series of interviews, and have probably listened to your podcast sermons, visited some of your services, and have done background and reference checks. Now it is your turn to ask the questions. Here are a few of Thom’s suggestions.
- “If a big decision needs to be made, to whom do the members look for the blessing or approval?”
- “What is your dream for how the church looks in 10 years?”
- “What was the topic of your last contentious business meeting? When was it?”
- “What is the biggest mistake one of your previous pastors made?”
