The Growing Reality
Recent studies from the Barna Research Group show that more than 80% of all pastors and more than 84% of their spouses regularly feel discouraged and feel like their ministries have a negative affect on their family life. Really? Is that true? How can that possibly be good for any congregation- to be led by someone who battles discouragement and a general lack of appreciation?
It’s something to think about. One thing for sure is that our pastors need our consistent encouragement, and they need regular periods of refreshment and rejuvenation!
