    Anyone know of some. I am searching for a pastorate when I return to the States in June. Help would be much appreciated.

    Based on your signature your field of possibilities will be pretty narrow.

    You should PM me and I'll give you plenty of options on how to proceed. There are many avenues to go. You'll be a fine minister and I'd be happy to help out.

    Might be best to start a church.

    Any pastor wants to educate the prospective church on their views, especially in cases where the church just does not know. Not being forthcoming on them can split a church and or cause a forced resignation. When that happens the pastor is suffering from their own error.

    To many times those issues do not get discussed in the interview process and it is a recipe fro disaster.

    I don't believe that Tim would not disclose any of his beliefs.....he would rather be very forthcoming. And I wish he would take a hard look at northern NJ.:smilewinkgrin:

    I'm sure they could use a solid Baptist Church.

    I have been very open about my theological proclivities. And I have had plenty of rejections because of it. I would love to plant a church... except I need $$$ to support myself and family in order to do so.

    By the way that was not meant as a criticism I was just making a statement of fact.

    This is not true. Take a look at "The Timothy Initiative". It is a resource for church planting and discipling. It works well with the beginnings in a home study. You could very well start a new work without giving up your current income until it grows to the point that is is self sustaining.

    It is a great thought... but I am leaving Honduras and returning to the States this June. So I don't have an income after July.

    I see well I do not run in those circles. I can suggest that because of Reformed Seminary in Orlando that there may be some churches close by. You might check with the Seminary and ask them if they know of any needing a pastor.

    Do you have any geographic restrictions?

    None... I've sent resumes to Alaska and Alberta, CA. It is just a slow and arduous process.

    Are you looking to switch back to Baptist or stay multi-denominational?

    Baptist (preferably reformed), baptistic, and/or non-denominational preferably.
