I've been taught (and I believe rightly so) that an associate Minster should never ask or give hints to the pastor about preaching assignments. I'm in a situation now that there are 3 associate ministers in our church including myself. The other associates have had at least a couple of opportunities to preach at our church this year. It has been a year since I've last preached. We've even had visiting preachers that had preached more times at my church than I have. I'm not sure if this is an oversight on my pastor or that there is a method to his "madness". Let me go on record to say that I love my pastor, and that I would never do anything to hurt the ministry. What should I do?
