Re: “Just call me pastor, son”.

I just wonder who will be the first UPCI/WWPF Archbishop since every elder is becoming a Bishop?

The best path to passing a church onto your son is to become a Bishop and stay on the payroll.

Re: Sons Inheriting Churches from Fathers $$$

I’m referring to a real seminary or school of theological instruction. Not IBC or similar. Most instructors at UPCI sponsored Bible Schools did not have graduate degrees 20 years ago. That has...

Well said.
I don't know the whole TS situation but I can imagine seeing another blood related rookie being promoted would rub someone that talented the wrong way.

In addition, just because Paul did it does not make it right.

Re: Sons Inheriting Churches from Fathers $$$

Many of the right wingers put pastors on such a high pedestal to where the individual saints will not have a word to say for themselves in judgement. Only the pastor will "give an account."

There...

Re: Sons Inheriting Churches from Fathers $$$

Who does the board consist of? Members from the local church or hand selected pastors which are more less a rubber stamp for critical decisions...such as installing your son as pastor.

Many times you will him them say, "this is my church and no one is going to come and steal it." I understand the sentiment if you sacrificed to build something but who's kingdom are you really...

Re: Sons Inheriting Churches from Fathers $$$

Re: Sons Inheriting Churches from Fathers $$$

If Pastors did not have so much autonomy over church finances and pushing their saints to essentially give up 10% of their hard earned income, I would venture to say Pastoral nepotism is not that big...

Re: Sons Inheriting Churches from Fathers $$$

The goal of this thread is not to disparage any one person. When I discovered this specific case, I felt it was important to shed some light on a real problem in Apostolic churches; the founding...

Re: Sons Inheriting Churches from Fathers $$$

Why not conduct a serious pastoral search vs. installing your son who has ZERO experience and lack of seminary education? This was a knee jerk decision to keep the $$ flowing in the family. Zero...

Even if he has a board of directors, they would be too afraid to vote him down. That how is how they got there in the first place. Kim Jung Un has advisors as well, look what happened to the last one...

Sons Inheriting Churches from Fathers $$$

New Bishops in UPCI

Is it just me or has there been a huge increase of Pastors becoming Bishops in the UPCI? My suspicion, and I say this respectively, is so they can stay on the payroll long after retirement.
