How D all, I have been in a situation in which the church that I was on full time staff at has let me go due to 'financial circumstances and the fact that all teachers everywhere only have a 1 year contract'. I was the youth pastor as well as teaching in the school. The school had a bad year so I was let go from everything. I am not willing to speak any more about why I am not on staff or if how they did it was right, wrong or otherwise. This is only to give insight to the reasons that I was given and I refuse to say anything more that might look like I am not taking the appropriate attitude. I told the pastor that the good of the church is more important than if I have a job there or not. So now I am in the position of needing to find a church that is looking for staff or pastor, the pastor commented that I should consider the pastorate instead of staff when he let me go. The question is, what sources do ya'll use? I have continually used what I know of but it seems very limited. I am beginning to wonder what I am supposed to do. I still feel a passion about working with teens but also have been thrilled at the thought of pastoring. I would simply like to know where else to look or if there are people that I can contact. I have looked and contacted the local fellowship of pastors that I try to stay involved in, I have contacted the Bible College I graduated from, I have contacted the national fellowship my college belongs to, I have contacted the S.B.C., the two Texas S.B.C. divisions, the Baptist General Conference. I know that there must be more churches out there in need of staff or pastors. Any help would be appreciated.
