Called to Stay or Called to Leave?
In the last year, 38% of pastors seriously considered leaving their role and the data is higher among pastors under the age of 45–almost half were thinking about leaving. Demands from church members, long hours, and the added challenge of COVID-19 leave pastors burned out and ready to make a change. How do you know if you should stay or leave? How are cultural realities, family responsibilities, and internal church forces impacting this decision?
