Record Number Of Pastors Consider Quitting

It is amazing what can happen when a group of like-minded believers put their heads together in an effort to encourage, inspire and edify ministry leaders throughout the world.

In response to an alarming report by Barna Research, that 51% of mainline pastors are considering quitting the ministry, Edify Leaders has added the option of online pastoral care and ministry coaching services at no cost to ministers or their churches.

 

“The Barna report shocked us,” says Ray Sanders, founder of the Oklahoma ministry that provides care and encouragement to ministers. “For a decade Edify Leaders has walked alongside pastors helping them process and navigate the challenges faced in life and ministry. Ministry can take its toll. It’s never been this bad. COVID-19 brought things to a breaking point.”

Over the years, Edify Leaders has developed a proven private and inspiring ministry coaching approach that is seeing incredible results as pastors are refreshed, recharged, and renewed. Edify Leaders has served more than 100 ministers from more than 16 denominations and has more than 100 years of combined ministry experience.

Barna Research found more Protestant pastors are considering stepping away from ministry. Joe Jensen, Barna’s vice president of church engagement, told the Christian Post, “This particular stat, this is the highest we’ve ever seen it. 2021 is the highest we’ve seen it, which is why as a company, quite frankly, we are alarmed and are concerned about the overall well-being of pastors. We’re concerned with how this is impacting the overall health of the Church. I really believe that at the heart of every healthy church is a healthy pastor.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?


If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
