Ready to be shocked beyond belief? I’m about to tell you some things you’re not going to enjoy hearing, but ignoring the problem won’t make it go away.
Did you know that…
- 1,500 pastors leave the ministry each year.
- 4,000 new churches begin every year, but more than 7,000 churches close.
- 50% of pastors are so discouraged that they would leave the ministry if they could, but they have no other way of making a living.
- About 75% of pastors go through a period of such great stress that they consider leaving the ministry, and nearly 40% actually do.
As a pastor, I can relate. And I can tell you why this is happening.
Repeatedly dealing with problems among congregants is not only physically draining, but it’s one of the quickest paths to pastor burn-out. And for many of us pastors, it puts us in the proverbial catch-22 situation: We know we need a Sunday off from time to time to re-energize our batteries, but then, who can we find to fill the pulpit that morning without our worrying whether we’ll have to do some damage control the next week for something the person said?
Sound familiar? Solving this problem isn’t as tough as you might think.
Jewish Voice Ministries International has a Church Relations Department specifically designed to help pastors in situations like these. When you need a well-deserved break, you can call us with the confidence in knowing that one of our doctrinally solid speakers will fill your pulpit and preach the truth of the Word of God. It really is that simple.
Here’s just a partial list of our topics. The rest is up to you, so let us know how we can help!
