  •  Not the congregation's fault. (none)
    I've only had two churches, plus one "fill-in" job.  We just could never find the right house for ourselves.

    The moving thing has a lot of causes:  some denominations rotate their pastors on a regular basis; it's like other professional jobs in terms of turnover--but you down have a "downtown" area to stay in; and congregations have a tendency to offer their highest salary when someone comes on board, which means that to get a raise, you often have to take a new (and larger) church.  And yeh, sometimes they're just tightfisted.
