Reality

Pastors and Ministry Leaders give much of their time and energy to others while often not getting the personal care they need.  They can feel isolated and alone during times of struggle, yet feel the pressure to "have it all together."  This can impact their personal life, family and ministry.  Current research from Barna shows...

42% of pastors have given real, serious consideration to quitting being in full-time ministry within the last year.  more
