Over 75% of pastors believe the ministry has negatively affected their families.
Less than 10% feel they were adequately trained to cope with the demands of ministry.
More than 70% of pastors are psychologically unhealthy, and fight depression on a regular basis.
Only 3 out of 10 pastors have a friend they can confide in.
Half of pastors today would leave the ministry if they could support their families doing something else.
Half of ministers starting today will not last 5 years in ministry.
Only 10 % of ministers starting in 2018 will retire from pastoral ministry.
We Can Help!
One of the five pillars of The Institute for Biblical Leadership is to make the restoration of ministers, not only possible, but probable! We love those who have given their lives to the service of the gospel, healing the broken, encouraging the distraught and building the Kingdom of God!
Needing the ear, heart and hand of another, has never been a sign of weakness, but of strength. It is has been the great leaders in history who leveraged their strengths and had the wisdom in crisis, to seek time and space for healing.
I.B.L. is committed to being that time and space for those in ministry in need of support! If you are discovering you are in crisis or pain, we are here to provide you with the loving, discreet, non-judgmental support that makes a difference. Feel free to contact our office for a confidential consultation, so we can help you and your family become happy and whole again.
