Pressures lead to clergy burnout

By some estimates, 1,500 pastors leave their jobs every month; about 1,000 of them say the pressures of low pay, shrinking congregations, long hours and their congregations’ expectations that they have perfect home lives are key reasons their passion to spread the faith has diminished. Clergy at fast-growing congregations also experience high stress from their increasing workloads and the expectations of their larger, more diverse congregations.

ReligionLink, a sister site of the Religion Newswriters Association, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of religious news reporting, has published a resource page offering background, articles and scholars and experts who can speak about the pressures that lead to clergy burnout. You can also access a wide range of research material on faith issues from ReligionLink’s main page
