Why Ministers are Leaving Local Church Ministry

A 2002 survey questioned Christian clergy who have left the ministry. The study, conducted across five Protestant denominations, yielded some interesting information. It turns out former pastors are not much different from active pastors in terms of age, education, or second-career status. However, the experience of being in congregational conflict and receiving little or no denominational support emerged as the biggest single reason people left ministry, and disagreements over the pastor’s leadership style was the most frequent source of church-based conflict.
