21st Century Clergy Job Outlook

Current data suggests that while the number of small churches is expanding, the majority of church attendees are moving into megachurches. As a consequence, fewer clergy will be able to follow a traditional career path from smaller to larger churches. The overall pulpit vacancy rate remains high because many clergy cannot afford the salaries offered by small church and part-time opportunities. Read "The Clergy Job Market: What are the opportunities for ministry in the 21st century?" an article by Patricia Chang, assistant director of the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life and associate research professor of sociology, Boston College, archived on the website of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research.
