We have bought a house and moved out of the parsonage. The church is okay with this idea. this gives them a sense of stability from the pastor. I shared with the Trustees about using the house for missionaries and for our a youth outing. The vision the Trustees have is to rent the parsonage to someone without advertising it. I have reservations about this idea. I don't want the church going into the Landlord business, but the big issue is to make sure the place is occupied. The thought is the house will deteriorate quicker in an unoccupied house rather than an occupied house. Can you give me some insight of the pros and cons about renting the parsonage? Thanks.
