The Interview (Satire)

19 Sep

A group of church elders (all in their 20s) interviewed a candidate for senior pastor. They asked about the experience of the man who replied that he had 30 years of expositional Bible teaching experience and that many had been saved & discipled under his watchcare.

Yawning, the chair of the elders replied, “Look Dude, that’s sort of impressive and all but here at Elevation Station (formerly Calvary Baptist before converting to Emergent) it’s all about the beer, the bling, and the Bon Jovi. It’s about stage lights, big screens, and decibels. It’s about rocking, rejoicing, and recreation. We need someone who can relate to our community… how much beer can you drink? Can you keep your sermonettes to under 15 minutes? “

The Bible teacher quietly left the building …

    Sounds like they need a Master of Ceremony not a preacher! If it wasn’t so true to life it would be
    funny…what a shame that things should be this way.

      Thanks, Michael. I too think this one is especially rich in irony & satire. This stuff is just too easy sometimes… Sad though…

    A group of church elders all in their twenties interview for a senior pastor. They asked about… experience…

    Not many people can deliver the punch line in the opening line and make it work. Nice job!

      Welcome back, Thomas and thanks for your kind words. I cannot take any credit however. This stuff is just so easy. I know many people in the ministry and I get email from them very often about all the crazy stuff going on in ministry. The toughest part of my job is to thin the material down to a couple of satirical jabs! Thanks so much for your support of my blog. I do appreciate everyone who stops by and especially those who comment.
