You know it is weird for me. As a pastor, I am the one that everyone looks to for guidence and leadership within the church, and here I am looking for the same thing. I have been the pastor of a great church for the past 2 years, and things have been great. We don't have any really big problems that other pastors have to face, I have a congregation that supports me and my family in the ministry, but yet I still feel like I am not making much of a difference. We are a church that averages around 40-50 people. We are located in a small, rural town in South Central Kentucky, in a community that I believe is over ran by religeon, therefore that makes it that much more difficult to reach the lost. The church that I pastor is a great church, but it is so hard to get them motivated to do any outreach. And it is because of that I believe that I am not haveing a good impact upon them. It seems like nothing I do really works to get them excited about outreach. I am currently looking for a youth pastor. We have interviewed an individual that I believe shares my vision for the church, but for the past 2 months he will not give us a direct answer of whether or not he is going to take the position. It seems like as soon as we take a step forward, we get pushed back 2-3 steps. I guess I am just using this forum to vent a little bit. I guess all I am looking for is prayer and encouragment in the ministry, because let me tell you, it seems like the Pastor is out there all by himself sometimes.
