    Big Shoes to Fill

    With Dr. Rex Horne set to take the helm as president of Ouachita Baptist University, there will soon be huge a gap at Little Rock's Immanuel Church. Word around the Arkansas Baptist Convention is that Immanuel will seek a pastor with national notoriety, who has a history of growing large churches into larger churches.

    Immanuel has its positives:

    1)With Bill Clinton safely tucked away as a former President, the next pastor will not have to negotiate the tough terrain Horne was forced to navigate during the 1990s. Clinton was a member and there were several "Friends of Bill" who attended the church; who were part of its power structure, and who were supportive of the President. Immanuel Church became a lightning rod because of Clinton's liberal policies and extracurricular activities with the ladies. (I would say a little church discipline should have been exercised.)

    2) The Church is no longer in its landlocked location in downtown Little Rock. It now boasts a multi-million dollar facility in growing West Little Rock.

    3) Two other churches in the area are without senior pastors. First Church, Little Rock, and Park Hill Church, North Little Rock, are without pastors. If Immanuel lands a pastor first, then there will be little chance it will suffer any member drift.

    Horne led Immanuel with class, dignity and solid direction. His successor will have big shoes to fill, but he will have a solid foundation on which to stand.
