Provocative Findings on Pastoral Leadership in the 21st Century

Surprisingly, only 40 percent of pastors in conservative denominations but 33 percent of pastors in mainline and liberal denominations, identify themselves as evangelical. Two-thirds of clergy preach to a congregation of less than 100 people, but only 25 percent of attendees are in churches with less than 100 members. The highest percent of clergy involved in continuing education (96 percent) are mainline/liberal Protestants located in the Northeast. The lowest percent (65 percent) are conservative Protestants located in the South. These are some of the findings offered in a 2003 presentation by Becky McMillan at Pulpit and Pew in The View from Pulpit & Pew: Provocative Findings on Pastoral Leadership in the 21st Century, SACEM Presentation. February 21, 2003 by Becky R. McMillan, Ph.D., M. Div. Associate Director, Pulpit & Pew
