The Deeply Satisfying & Frustrating Vocation of Ministry

The pastoral vocation is deeply satisfying for the vast majority of practicing clergy. Yet, those same clergy express a deep sense of frustration in their efforts to reach people with the gospel, to care for their own families, to meaningfully connect with other human beings, and to touch the lives of those in need. How is deep satisfaction in their vocation consonant with the wide range and degrees of frustration clergy face on a daily basis? In this reflection, Duke Divinity School Dean L. Gregory Jones explores the findings of the National Clergy Survey, indicates what they mean for the practice of church leadership, and highlights what they point to as areas where support and improvement are essential for today’s clergy.
