On another note,,, what our churches need these days is people staying put in them and weathering the storm. If this pastor does turn out to be a bad one,,, your church needs you there... they don't need you to run away. If I were in your shoes (which I am, I have been at the same church since child-birth) I would stick it out. That is your church, your place of worship, where you go to worship God and to spend time with your brothers and sisters in Christ. Don't let one person drive you away from a Church, even if it is the Pastor. In this case, I would meet with him one on one and discuss what's on your mind. He's a pastor, that's what he does. Then make your decision. Just my opinion...
