A church in Colorado has posted a job listing on ChurchStaffing.com that claims, “This offer is going to be nothing like any other church job post.” And after reading it, it’s pretty safe to assume that is indeed the case.
The church said that people in their area “are hungry but the spiritual food in the churches here are without flavor or life. However, they said, “When you watch a sermon from Craig Groeschel, Andy Stanley, or Steven Furtick, you feel like you were fed. Why can’t we have that in a church without playing the videos from the above pastors?”
Now, finding a pastor who has the same teaching abilities as some of the most widely recognized pastors in the world isn’t the easiest task. Here’s what they are pitching:
Here is our concept. If a worship leader can take a song from Chris Tomlin and play it just like the album and that is 100% [accepted] in the church why can’t you as a pastor copy or do word for word a sermon from Craig Groeschel? Sure add 10% of your own style to it just like the band does. This concept would work great mixed with your own sermons about 20% of the time.
Essentially, they are looking for a pastor to preach other pastor’s sermons most weeks.
