Hey Pastors, I was just wondering if any of you have had an experience with abuse from a former congregation. Have any of you been done extremely wrong by a church in the past at no fault of your own? How did it effect you next ministry? What ways did you deal with the desire to be mistrusting of your new congregation? I have met a few ministers that have really had abusive churches. I myself have pastored an abusive church - it was the history with about every pastor before me. It really did not have anything to do with the pastor exactly, it was the church that was always fueding. The pastors there just got the bad end of things. Anyway, any thoughts?
