This is the perfect example of "Did God Call YOU To Ministry"? If God calls, who shall YOU be listening too? God or Man that is the question. God call you to ministry or marriage? God call you to ministry or your desire to marry? Choose one or the other. This is a perfect example of whom shall you choose, trust or just plain and simple.....FOLLOW. God is not about confusion, nor is He the author thereof. I say, WAIT on the LORD, not wait to marry, but to God be the glory, He gave choices so YOU choose. Ask God not people, trust God who should be your first LOVE.

What is your vision for the church? Has your vision changed? God can change your vision. Another words you will only go as far as you can see? God willl often times expand your horizon. As a leader/pastor of God's church you must have a vision in order to lead the people of God. If you follow someone else's vision than you won't be going anywhere right along with your congregation. Sometimes we can't see what is next and we are left with two choices: 1. Step out on faith. 2. Wait on the Lord. Eventually God will get you where you are supposed to be!
Many options, but of course, as mentioned, seek the Lord. I know of a couple who married after they both were already in pastor positions,so they merged their ministries. Both are pastors together (Pastor and Co-Pastor). What she had and what he had caused something great. I know one of the concerns is the style, but even congregants have different styles of things. You both could possibly merge it, because God could very well be trying to do something bigger and greater than what has already been in motion. Yes, some things are done differently, but a common ground came be made and even merged in that area. I believe God allowed this for a reason to show that even in the most difficult situations, he can cause greatness.
