Since we are a church-run school, part of the evaluation process is an interview with the pastors of Redeemer. Our meeting was at 10:15 am today, Nathan had arrived to the conference room just a few minutes before me and had already introduced himself as the associate pastor. Ever looking the part, Nathan had on a nice jacket and tie- very pastor-like. I never wear a jacket and tie except on Sundays, frankly, I can't stand wearing them. For as formal as we are on a Sunday morning, I'm a pretty informal guy the other 6 days. So I arrived in the conference room and greeted the two serious looking ACSI evaluator dudes who would conduct the interview. I introduced myself by name only and sat down with Nathan at the table.
A few awkward seconds elapse and the head interviewer says- "So, will the senior pastor be joining us"?
I just thought that was so funny.
