So have any of you experienced the issue of having the previous pastor still in attendance and still "teaching" at their church? I have a very interesting situation and I may reveal more as the discussion continues. In a nuthsell he is the founding pastor, the church is only about 25 years old and he retired back in the 90's. He still teaches a sunday school class (for the seniors) and he receives a pension. There have been 3 full-time pastors since him and he has been here every day. Now that's not the whole story... but I'd be curious as to your "so far" thoughts.
