Given the requirements of 1Timoty 3:1-7, though, he should be a mature Christian and have better than the layman teaching abilities which should point to a more rapid response.

Be respectful and give him a reasonable amount of time. Although what constitutes reasonable, is open to your interpretation.

But all-in-all, I think a week is reasonable, IMHO.
Thanks! That makes a lot of sense!

Re: age or how long he has had a flock under his teaching, you would assume he has preached on the whole counsel of God.
