I am going to talk to a search committee this weekend for the first time ever. I am getting into my fourth year of seminary, so I've heard of some things to do: I've prayed :thumbs:, I've checked the annual state convention reports for the church's name, I've googled, altavistaed, yahooed, and dogpiled it beyond recognition. I don't know any current pastors from the area/association to ask anything about. I found the former pastor's name but can't find any other info on the internet about him. Do you experienced pastors or search committee interviewees out there know of any other sources of objective information about specific churches? I'm sure I can find subjective information this weekend at all three of the convenience stores and restaurants in the town where the church is. :tongue3: I probably know enough to know where to start to ask questions, but it's always nice to know more, isn't it?
