I'd assume you were one of several candidates so they need to hear and meet all of them before they can even think about a decision. If you were the first to show up it could be quite a while.

If it's anything like the UK, here's what happens.

1 - Someone speaks with a view.
2 - Church hears him speak and comments go back to the elders deacons.
3 - Have a church meeting to decide if it would be worthwhile for person to come back for a second Sunday.
4 - Elder contacts person.


Point 2 can take anything from a week to a couple of months while people get their views to the church council.

Point 3 can also take a long time, as a meeting date has to be decided and sometimes that will be a number of weeks (if it hasn't already been arranged before hand).


Sometimes there is a quick turn round, but mostly it takes an age to get anywhere.... Not sure how it works in USA, but I'd say in the UK it would take about a month, maybe two.

Still no word. I don't know whether to just mentally move on or to e-mail the search committee and inquire where they are at in the selection process.

Maybe it's wise to wait till it's 4 weeks ago.
And then to send an e-mail to ask how it goes if there's news.
It takes long.

Was there anything of the church you have preached 4 weeks ago?
Maybe time to ask via an e-mail how things go.
It is very polite to let you know what happened.
I think the church committe can send you an e-mail or call you to tell what decision they have made or that they need more time.
4 Weeks is a reasonable time to hear more.

I sent them an e-mail at 3 weeks. I finally heard something back on Thursday morning, but was more concerned about Holly's family with her brother's death.

But, the church told me that they had scheduled several potential pastors to speak, but that they would soon be getting back in touch with me. The search committee leader also said that they had several people ask for us to return to speak again.

That's a VERY good sign.

Althought it's been nearly two months since we went to the little church in Pikeville, TN for the trial sermon, God isn't done with us there yet. Oh, I've wrestled with why it was taking God so long even though I know that He isn't slack concerning His promises. I've tried to remain hopefull and be patient, but both my hope and patience have worn VERY thin the last couple of weeks.

Tonight, we got a call from the church and they want us to come again. We will go up in two weeks on Nov. 25. What happens then is still up in the air, but I thank God that we are seeing something happen.

I am SO ready to step up and step out in faith for this church. WE really fell in love with the people, the area, and Holly & I know that this is the type of work we were created for. But, I know that God is faithful when I am not, and He is working even when I cannot see. So, I'm just going to stop my whining, keep on praying, start doing more praising, and allow Him to drive.

Whatever His will is, then that's what we want. I want for this church to have a godly man who loves Jesus to pastor them. If I am that man, then I'm ready to do this.

Good you finally know now when you have to go back to Pikesville.

Sometimes God will use things to teach you.
I really hope God will show the church commitee too that you are the perfect pastor to guide and lead and let this church grow in spiritual way and in numbers too.

It are some words of "Go" That's right.
I only thought they fit to this situation.
When it was not good to use those words I apologize.
It's never my meaning to use words who are not good.

No Yvonne, those words are very apt.
And it is a good idea to give them back to the man who gave them to us. He can use them as well.

When you go back to the church in Pikesville next week do you have to preach in two services too?

I pray God will give you the ideas and the words for a very bold sermon(s).
One that will impress the people so much and will be the cause they go further with you.
Sermon(s) with a message so that the people tell each other that it seems the sermon(s) are written for them.
As personal message from God for this congregation.

Yes. And I will probably take my guitar and make them listen to me sing. Then, to get the job, I will threaten them to hire me or I'll sing again!

Or, not. LOL

Glad to see you are still keeping your sense of humor.
But if you really want the job, threaten to let Sabidoo sing.

I wonder if that's such a good idea.
I hope they don't have hidden under the wooden floor some old mice who appear by the sound of your guitar and the sound of your voice. LOL
