If you asked a few hundred church members from multiple churches what characteristics they were searching for in a pastor, what do you think they’d say?
You don’t have to wonder. Thom Rainer asked that question a while ago and published the top ten responses on his blog. Here they are:
Love of congregation
Good work ethic
Casts a vision
Demonstrates healthy leadership
Does not yield to critics
When I read the list, I smiled.
