Pastors Connect is a unique program designed to support pastors and their ministry and leadership staff. Each day church leaders are faced with many more challenges than those working outside the church.
Without additional support many pastors and leaders are forced to choose between their families, their own mental health and continuing to provide leadership to their members.
According to the Frances A Schaeffer Institute of Church Leadership Development:
* 100% of the pastors surveyed (over 1000) had a close associate or seminary friend who had left the ministry because of burnout, conflict in the church or moral failure.
* 90% complained of frequent fatigue or feeling worn out each week.
* 89% said they'd considered leaving the ministry at one time or another and 57% said they would if they had a better job to go to.
* 77% said they felt they didn't have a good marriage.
* Only 38% said they read the Bible for personal devotions or personal study.
* 71% said they battled depression beyond fatigue on a weekly or daily basis.
* Only 26% had personal devotions and felt adequately fed spiritually!
