This is the first time that I have tried posting my thoughts on-line. It is a little intimidating to share your thoughts but I needed a way to re-connect with other women in ministry. I graduated from seminary in May and I am starting my D.Min. work in September (if everything works out).
I pastor a small country church that I love but can't seem to grow. It is very frustrating because my Bishop is very focused on numbers and I am not producing great numbers. We are doing great, new things in ministry but "Butts in the Pews" are just not happening. My people say that when they get a male pastor that it will really take off. OUCH!!
