Good things from my WebsitesChurchPlanting: Warning Signs Bad Pastor revised Read this article by Pastor Cox on how to identify a bad pastor. This article is a help article for those on church candidate committees (to choose a new pastor for their church), but it is also very helpful for those looking for a new church.
1. Make sure he is really saved.
The problem in countless pastor-church conflict cases are either the leaders in the church or the pastor (or both) are unsaved. There is no substitute for a pastor who is committed and dedicated to following the morality of Christ as seen in Christ's person and explained in the many verses of Scripture. He lives out his salvation if he is saved (what you want). If he is not really saved, you will suffer under his carnality and sinful soul.2. Make sure he is the Example of Christ.
---Living the example of a "Man of God"
---How do you discern that "morality of Christ" in a minister?
---What particularly are you looking for?
(1) Sarcasism. (2) Lying or bending the truth. (3) Courtesy and formality with each other. (4) Service to others instead of everybody serving him and his purposes. (5) True love. (6) Balanced. Logical and thinking. Sound mind. Consensus. Non-Competitive.
3. The Financial Testimony of a Good Pastor.
---Liberty from Covetousness.

---Mobile shepherd wanderer.
4. Failing to fulfill the Spiritual Requirements for Pastor
5. A Real Dedication and Submission to the Word of God

8. Make sure he can pray.
---What is a man of prayer?
