My husband just informed me that God is calling him to pastor a Methodist church. I am worried though- I hate to move and I was told pastors just get sent places, and they have to go. Also- is it true that your house is paid for? any extra info you could give me would be great!!!
I sit on the board at my church so here is a bit of knowledge.Generally Methodist ministers are assigned to churches by their conference.In the beginning he will be an ass. or asst. minister to a sr.pastor.As he gets experience he will be given more responsibility.This can range from being an ass.minister to a very large church to a sr pastor at a smaller church.Then hopefully he will continue up.There will probably come a time when he will stay put.Some of our very large churches conduct their own search for a sr pastor.When this happens the pastor stays till retirement.Housing is variable also some churches provide a parsonage with room to decorate others will let ministers pick out a parsonage within guidelines with the ownership being retained by the church.Others simply provide an income large enough to buy a home.What is your husbands education most Methodist ministers are degreed in theology
