    Have you ever heard of a Co-CEO of a company?
    A Co-Head Coach of a asports Team. How crazy would it be to have two head coaches ona football team?
    "Co" means: "the SAME"...When I think of "Co" I think of two men or two women...
    You can see where that might be a problem in a company, church, business or marriage!
    Somebody has got to be the decison maker and call the shots.What happens when your Co-pastors get divorced? Or locked up? or Dies? In almost every instance the female partner is ousted and replaced by a new Pastor.
    A two headed monster is Frankenstein! We goin' in on P2T!
