This is a question primarily to pastors but I woudld like to hear the thoughts of the laity as well. A pastor friend of mine was being considered by a search committee a number of years ago. He insisted that the committee be unanimous in its voting before he would be willing to come before the church to preach in view of a call. What are your requirements on this issue? Assuming that you agree that God might call one of His 'called' to a troubled and hurting body, what type of majority would you expect from the committee? From the congregation?
