Statistics on Pastors: 2016 Update

Research on the Happenings in Pastors' Personal and Church Lives.

So, what is going on with today's servants of the Church?

Since first studying pastors in the late 80's, we are seeing significant shifts in the last 20 years on how pastors view their calling and how churches treat them.

 

How central is Christ's life and death in the pastor's teachings? 85% Central!

Two of the primary foundations of the Gospel Message are who Jesus is and what He did on the cross for us. So, if we do not have a high view of Christ as LORD, then what are we about? That is why many mainline denominational churches are collapsing. They have no real purpose anymore. We have to trust in our Good Shepherd to lead us to the good pastures, and we are to do our part with gratitude and diligence and not run away from His pen. We also are called to be led by the Word and not by our pride or by false teachers, the thieves who would rob us of God's instructions and replace them with nonsense and dangerous cliffs from which we could fall.
