With the new series underway on finding a church job it made sense to help facilitate the process. To post job openings and profiles of Rookie Pastors looking for work. When I floated the idea on Twitter and Facebook I even had some encouraging responses.
But for now I have decided to pass on the idea.
It was a way to expand this ministry and help other Rookie Pastors. But I don’t think I could pull it off without taking away from something.
It is important to me to do this right and I don’t have the technical expertise or the resources to pull this off that would match how it looks in my mind.
This was a good thing, but not a great thing.
Over the last few months I have been able to interact with, advise, and pray with other Rookie Pastors via email, over the phone, and face to face. It has been these interactions that push me to forward and leave me encouraged.
During this same time period by blog metrics Rookie Pastor has seen incredible growth. I knew releasing an eBook for free as an incentive to sign up for an email list would lead to growth but not at the levels I have seen. I had hoped that I could finally get this thing profitable, just didn’t think I’d cover my annual expenses in three weeks.
So yes I will be continuing to add sponsors. And yes more eBooks are on the way. And yes you will still get what you have been getting. But you won’t be getting a job board.
However I am always willing to help.
