Were there any indicators that you identified before you went to Newton Falls (during the candidating process) that led you to believe it was a good fit? The reason I'm asking such questions is because I have a pastor whom I've known for a long time who is has gone to two seperate churches and gotten in trouble/experienced dificulties. Obviously since we've been here in Crystal River for 11+ years it's a good fit, but I can't identify anything that led me to believe it would be any different thaqn any other church I've pasotred/attended. While I cautioned him against going to the first church, I didn't have the same vibe about this second one. Is it just "luck" or are there recognizable signs?
What was the difference between New Port Richey & Newton Falls as far as your believing that God had led you there?
Thanks for contemplating these questions and for sharing your thoughts with me.
