My church is currently looking for God's man for our church. The church has a parsonage, but we are one of three or four in our area that still have one. i have been placed as the chairman of a committee to look into the pros and cons of keeping the parsonage vs selling it. My main questions are these: What are the feelings of pastors (you) about a parsonage in today's world? Would a pastor today be better provided for by offering the choice of a parsonage or a living expense? Does your church have a parsonage and/or do you live in it? I realize this may sounds overly simple to some, but it is a real issue for us. The committee, all to the person, feels that the church would be better served by selling the parsonage and giving our future pastor a housing allowance, but we know better than to just give our thoughts on the matter. We are praying hard over this, I will be meeting with our local DoM, and God laid it heavy on my heart to seek the thoughts of the pastors here on the BB.
