Interview Questions

Without a doubt, there are just some individuals who have a heart and passion for others like no other. The person I believe that exemplifies this the absolute most would be a man by the name of Ken Whitten, whom has been the senior Pastor at Idlewild Baptist Church for over 25 years. This church has continued to grow not only due to God’s grace and the wonderful ministries provided but because of the guy behind the pulpit. This man has selflessly dedicated his life to not only the gospel but people. Ken Whitten has such a huge heart for others and you can truly see the results of that in the growing number of members at Idlewild Baptist Church and more specifically what the church has done in the community. Given the chance to interview him I would like to ask him about his personal life, what it’s like to be a leader and how he found this calling on his life.

  • What is the church doing in the community that you are most excited about?
  • Have you ever had a job outside of the church?
  • What is it like being the leader of such a large congregation?
  • What do you think people ask you most frequently?
  • Who is your biggest spiritual influence?
  • Where do you see Idlewild in 10 years?
  • Describe your call to the ministry and what motivates you to stay in the ministry?
  • What is the most challenging thing about being a pastor?
  • Out of the countless mission trips you have been on which was your favorite and why?
  • What is your favorite part about being a pastor?

  1. Kaline, I enjoyed the beginning preview of your interview. Pastors do not get as much credit as they should in the community. Even for people who are not religious, pastors are willing to help in any way they can. Your questions were great, also. I look forward to seeing the rest of your interview!
