I attend a large, well known and respected IFB church with a Bible College where the reasonably new youth pastor is not married. Normally in IFBdom all those is "full-time" ministry should be married, in fact those in the pastoral staff or ministerial staff MUST be married as far as I know. Furthermore, this unmarried youth pastor is the senior pastors son. I'm sure that he would NEVER hire an unmarried male staff (uless perhaps a widower) because it is pushed in IFBdom that ministerial students should be married before being "thrust out" into full time ministry. No prospective church would EVER hire unmarried pastoral staff, especially un unmarried youth pastor. That's what is told to them anyway and essentially preached in IFBdom. I was wondering, what do readers think of an unmarried youth pastor? If he WASN'T the pastors so, would he have any possibilities to be a preacher or a pastor without a wife?
