Ever wondered what would happened if a Pastor Search Committee uses the Bible to guide them as they seek a new Pastor for their church? Chris Brauns answers that question in his book, When The Word Leads Your Pastoral Search. Brauns uses the Bereans from Acts 17, who were very Word-centered, as an illustration to show his readers that being searching the scriptures is a great way to search for a new Pastor. A lot of times Pastors are searched based on what the church wants without giving any thought to the Bible.
Brauns even went into the difference between expository and topical preaching, which a lot of people in the church still do not know the difference, using a topical sermon called "The Miracle of Moms". He talked about what to look for in a Pastor based on 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. The last couple of chapters in the book is on how to do the interview with candidates and suggested interview questions.
This book was unique because not many people want to read a book on conducting a Pastoral search unless you are actually in the middle of a search. This was a great read and recommend it to pastors to read it themselves and give their church a copy when or if he leaves that church.

This book is an excellent resource for every pastoral search committee. Too many search committees focus on the minors of a pastoral candidate and do not focus on the major and critical issues of preaching and pastoral ministry. Brauns has provided an excellent resource to help search committees focus on what matters the most in finding the right pastor.
I highly recommend this book. Every pastor and every church should have this resource in their library. Nothing is more important than finding a pastor as there is no higher calling than to preach the Word of God. Brauns helps readers understand the importance of this.
