High Student Debt Overwhelms Religious Workers

It is not rare for seminarians to graduate with as much as $80,000 in combined undergraduate and graduate school debt. The median annual wage of full-time clergy was $44,140 in 2011, according to the U.S. Labor Department. New clergy usually earn considerably less. And that combination can lead to big problems.

Learn more about the high cost of religious service and access several valuable links, through a post by David Briggs on the website of the Association of Religion Data Archives, an online resource for high-quality religion research databases and articles.
