    Smile Correct Introduction

    All,
    In making an introduction of a pastor, the pastor's assistant, and the pastor's deacons. What is the proper order of acknowledgement to present them. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

    Thank you,
    Odis

    In order of imprtance. I'm not a Christian, but I would go Pastor, Deacons, then the assistant, as that strikes me as the order of importance.

    Thank you very much, I was thinking the same in term of importance. What puzzled me was the introduction from a speaker and she didn't acknowledge the pastor first and I felt it was inappropriate for me to do it the same way.

    Thank you,

    Did she place him last? I think that could work, but the pastor should be the focus at one end of the introduction, though I wouldn't do it that way.
