Even Clergy are Leaving the Church!

"Faithful to the Church" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward


Not just members are leaving the church! It is estimated that in the USA alone approximately 2,000 pastors leave the ministry PER MONTH! Apparently that's just a fraction of those who wish they could but can't for whatever reasons. The statistics are eye-opening! I am one of those pastors who left. I'm glad I did. My life is now better for it. It was a long struggle until I did leave though. I'm totally empathetic towards those who struggle to stay or leave. *** PROMOTION: I created a workshop (which includes a private and confidential Facebook group as well as a safe space to ask me anything) to help pastors with the transition out of the ministry, including right down to the detail of helping them redo their resume! Check it out!
