Comments:

Our retiring minister and his wife had a remarkable and sustained tradition of service to both our congregation and the community for 30 years.

I’m sure it goes without saying that not many interim ministers and their wife could face these challenges with the successful and verifiable history that Jerrie and Gail Barber’s interim ministry offers.

Pros:

Jerrie’s presentation and knowledge on “how to go about marketing Northside Church of Christ” coupling his on-going direction and success in no time developed almost 90 resume’s seeking our position!

Cons:

Only that Jerrie’s and Gail’s work here with Northside will soon be completed — and they will be missed!!

Jerrie and Gail are a wonderful Christian couple. They bring a refreshing “back to the Bible” approach to worship services and Bible studies. They are an encouraging influence to live as Christians are taught in the scriptures.

Pros:
Biblical
Caring
Straight forward (you won’t have to wonder what either of them are thinking)

Cons:

Jerrie, I think it was a blessing for Northside when the elders invited you and Gale to come and be our interim preacher and help us through our time of need. You are an exceptional and unique couple and very dedicated to you work. It shows how much you love the Lord and how much you want to help your brothers and sisters in Christ. Also, how much you want to bring others to Christ. I have enjoyed your teachings and fellowship and knowing about you both. I wish you great things in helping other churches. We have enjoyed some good times.

Pros:

Cons:
Some of your meetings with elders and office staff could have been shorter.

Didn’t know what to think at first. I like your “no nonsense” approach. No name calling, only sincere, heaven-bound concerns of each other, not nit-picking.
If it’s your opinion, you say so. I have not thought about “liking criticism”! But if we truly can learn to not feel “attacked,” we can allow it to make us stronger.
Both of you, Jerrie & Gail getting “fully” involved with every part of Northside is a great example. I truly appreciate you both. I’m very thankful our elders brought you to us. I think we could use you longer. You’ve been a blessing.
