“Preachers Moving – When, Why, and How” with Adam Faughn (Preachers in Training S3E11)

Preachers in Training Season 3, Episode 11 for Thursday, April 21, 2016, 2016

Adam Faughn discusses preachers moving from one congregation to another. He and Robert discuss the following questions:

  • How can a preacher know when it is time to leave a work for another work?
  • What are appropriate reasons to leave? How can one know when he should persevere versus when he should leave?
  • Is it bad for a preacher to move to a different work because he feels that the new work would afford more opportunities of service than the old work did?
  • If one is leaving a congregation due to difficulties in that work, does he have an obligation to try to talk about the troubles with that congregation’s leadership (especially if the troubles include doctrinal error or other sins)?
  • Some seem to think less of or look down on on preachers who leave after only being at a congregation for a relatively short time. Is this justified?
  • Would you advise moving to another congregation in the same area?
  • When a preacher is seeking a new work, should he inform his current eldership of his intentions to leave? If so, when?
  • How can we navigate transitioning from one congregation to another without splitting the church?
