Our Church will thus be able to have an extremely diverse ministry available. We feel that at least one of our staff should be able to relate to most situations any of our congregation members might face.
In addition, if someone in a discussion group needs to discuss a "private" subject, a pastor can join him/her in a "private chat room" where no one else could "listen in." A personal and private phone call or e-mail conversation would also be available, as desired.
At present, we have various "contributing" Pastors and these regular Pastors:
Pastor Carl is an active, athletic, inquisitive individual. He has won quite a few beach and indoor volleyball tournaments. He has had very long hair (which is now fairly short) and drives a red sports car. He enjoys traveling, exploring, learning.
He has an active sense of humor, as when describing a quick mental calculation before walking into a waterfall in Yellowstone. He lost a decimal point and got "smoooshed" by the "mean" waterfall. (Not seriously hurt.)
Some have assumed he does drugs, or looks to cause trouble, or is just generally "bad news." Those people are wrong! Pastor Mike is a wonderful (but occasionally rebellious) person. He is very intelligent and thoughtful, and is remarkable in his understanding and analysis of life's problems for young people. We probably WON'T have him selecting and arranging the music for our services, though. A White Zombie tune probably won't set the mood we need.
Pastor Mike has a variety of interests, inclucing metal music, sports, pool and friends. While attending a party a few months ago, he wound up trying to negotiate peace talks between two groups of guys who had absorbed some alcohol. He nearly got beat up by either or both groups of strangers! (His peace talks prevailed, though.) Then there's the time at the golf driving range when the club slipped out of his hand and flew 61 yards!
