    How about a little testimony. Saved? Credentialed? Experience? Conservative or Calvinist? Calling (teens, young adults, gifts, what?)?

    Welcome to BB. :godisgood: We all belong to churches where there are opportunities. God obviouslly led you to us. "Whataya got for us?" :laugh:

    If you are over 50 I know a church in TX where you cannot pastor since they said that you MUST be under 50 to apply.

    Hey, we have plenty of places in Japan to pastor... "The harvest is plenteous but the laborers are few."

    I don't reckon the Brits would cotton to a redneck pastor. Besides I suspect sharia law will be in effect in a few years and I know I would lose my head then for sure.

    Apparently he's found a job. I don't see he's come back to post any more pleas. :saint:

    I think that most churches looking for a pastor would be far more concerned with what a man believes than with the colour of his neck! :laugh:
    Yes, I know "redneck" can mean something else: an offensive term for a white farmworker in the southern United States, especially one regarded as uneducated or aggressively prejudiced, but I don't see how that applies here, unless the "uneducated" bit means the man knows nothing of the bible.

    Well, my Alabama background reminds me that "redneck," rather than being seed as a pejorative, is often worn as a badge of honour!

    Just one of the strange American things David :).

    Now, bring a Southerner to the UK and call him a Yank and you would have an issue :). It took me years to get over being referred to as a "Yank." To a Southerner that is to much like "Yankee" and ONLY applies to people from the northern states. It is usually preceded by an adjective, four letters long, staring with a "d," and ending with an "n." :)

    Sorry, I was not sure about redneck, so I looked it up, and my dictionary told me it was an offensive term.

    Yes, I knew that "Yank" is not synonymous with "American". I suppose it is a bit like the way some Americans seem to refer to anything from the UK as "English", regardless of whether it is from England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. :)

    Very similar, maybe even like a Yank calling an Irishman a Brit :).

    LOL! The subjects we cover here on the BB in the most unlikely of places never ceases to amaze (amuse?) me!

    According to historian David Fischer, redneck is a word that was common in the border region of NW England/SW Scotland, and brought over here by the Scots-Irish during the 17th century, and meant the same as is does now; one who is poor but proud.

    And in an extremely odd linguistic development, in Japanese slang the loan word Yankii (Yankee) came to mean "young punk"--though I haven't heard it for a few years probably due to Matsui now playing for the New York Yankees! :D

    In the town where I lived during the school year is a pastor who started a church at the age of 55. It is the fastest growing church in town. He is one of the godliest men I have met in my life. The man loves God and loves people enough to tell them the truth. I think Warren Wiersbe was his mentor.
