Recently, we got a letter from another pastor in our group (GARBC.) It was from a bi-vo pastor of a small existing church wanting our church to commit to supporting his church/him at $10 a month for three years. He believes that if enough churches or individuals do this, he can quit his job to be a full-time pastor and grow the church sufficiently in three years to cover full-time pay for the pastor. There was no missionary agency mentioned, no accountability measures noted. Would you send a letter like this if you were in his shoes? Would you have your church support this pastor? This letter rankled me a bit. My dh has pastored the same church for 7 years and is bi-vo. He's never gotten a raise from the church in all that time, in fact we have taken a cut. We would never send out a letter like this.
