What is my campaign platform
Lately, as I watch all the campaign mumbo jumbo, my mind wanders off because of the hot air going back and forth. I am interested in the topics of discussion, but it seems like the candidates are more interested in political posturing than solving the problems.
So, my mind wanders to being a pastor and I am so glad that I don’t have to ‘run’ for pastor of PSM. What would it be like it there were term limits to being a pastor here? What if I had to campaign for the position? Unfortunately, some people have to face those types of political challenges in their church systems or denominations.
In the context of a campaign and a platform, what would I stand for and against? Or more interestingly, what would my opponent point out as my weakness and my failures?
As your next pastor I would:
- increase baptisms!
- increase tithes (not the percent but the # of payers)
- lower backsliding statistics
- increase volunteers
- repair relationships with foreign churches
- stop the war of gossip
- improve the hostess program
