You Are Free To Block Me After This Post… This thing of
sending an assistant pastor to start a new branch WITHOUT any financial
assistance, asking them to go and ‘prove’ their ministry looks like
wickedness in religious robe.
Did you consider that those pastors have families who depend on them?
ministry are they even proving? Theirs or yours? Definitely not theirs
because this church is your ministry, not theirs? If they were going out
to start their own ministry, then we can tell them to go and prove
their ministry. Even though we should actually assist them too But this

I am saying this because in my village,
there’s a vibrant young pastor who was sent there by a very big ministry
headquartered in the city, and he’s in my village to ‘prove his

when a pastor leaves the service of your church having served for
years, please don’t let him go empty handed. The situations surrounding
his exit notwithstanding, provided he had once worked for you over the
years, he deserves a gratuity/pension.

several times, assistant pastors should start demanding for a formal
employment contract which stipulates the terms and conditions of their
employment. This is 21st century
