The person I am eagerly preparing to interview is an older gentlemen named Ken Whitten. Whitten is the senior pastor at Idlewild Baptist Church and has been for over 25 years now. I chose to interview him because not only do I believe he helps do amazing things throughout Tampa Bay but he has such a pure and genuine heart for people. As far as preparation goes, I prepared for the interview by gathering my list of questions I intend to ask and by emailing back and forth with his secretary Paula to schedule a time. The biggest challenges I faced during this pre interview process would be finding a date and time that worked with both of our busy schedules. Of course when we had finally settled on a time and set up an appointment, Hurricane Irma postponed that. Now with everyone returning back to some kind of normalcy after the storm I have been in touch with not only Paula but Ken himself. I plan to interview him by the end of the week and needless to say I’m eager to finally interview Pastor Ken.
