So, in my Baptist circles, a divorced pastor causes a lot of consternation. It sort of went without saying that a minister in the midst of a divorce needed to resign, or at least take several years away from ministry. In other words, there seems to be this idea that preachers who divorce are at least temporarily disqualified from ministry, and in some cases permanently so.
Andy Stanley picks up on this in his book "Deep and Wide," speaking of his father (Charles Stanley), who in 1992, underwent a very public divorce. He writes:
While most of the congregants at First Baptist Atlanta (FBA) were willing to stand by my dad no matter what, there was a group that insisted he take some time off to work on his marriage. ... In addition to the take-some-time-off group, there was an element in the church that thought my dad should resign. It was their conviction that if my mom actually went through with the divorce, he would be disqualified to serve in his current capacity. As cruel as that may sound, you need to understand that until that time, First Baptist Atlanta had never had a divorced staff member or deacon. You couldn't be elected to the deacon board if you had been divorced. So, in the minds of the resign-now crowd, they were simply applying what they had been taught.

This seems related to the whole "deacons need to be the husband of one wife thing," but if this is the case, where does the chance at rehabilitation come from?
In short, what teachings would only temporarily disqualify a divorced pastor from preaching?
