I know full well, having been abused in two churches; first, by a senior pastor who resented my effective leadership of the church's pre-school, second, by a senior pastor who resented my effectively researching a theological question. I was fired from the first position and forced out of the second. In the first, in Newtown PA, the pastor pursued vengeance by causing a mortgage to be denied that would have taken us out of a rental on the church property; then, he hired and attorney to evict us without a housing alternative. In the second, in Hastings NE, the pastor harassed me until I resigned; then, he slandered me to every church where I sought another position until I was unable to serve in any position other than a volunteer solo missionary.
This last ministry, in Frederick MD, was the most satisfying of my life because I was able to serve Jesus Christ with all of the gifts of leadership and teaching which He bestowed upon me. I was facilitated by the Godly leaders of my missions agency instead of hampered by the jealousy and spitefulness of insecure, petty senior pastors.
