I have canidated at a church, and they will be voting this Sun. I felt good about the opportunity, until I contacted the former pastor on the advice of a well seasoned ministry friend. The former pastor told me that the church was a very loving and supportive church with a great vision, however there are two men in leadership that have been accused (not convicted) of sexual abuse to children. This is a very small town, and because of the accusations, they have very few children and youth. The parents just won't let the kids go, and who could blame them. Both the church and the former pastor told me that he left on good terms, so I have no reason to suspect that the former is trying to cause trouble. There are also 7 other churches in a town of 700. Any advice?
