These figures sound right to me. But I need to see where they come from and how good the study and/or studies are.
The claim that 1,500 pastors quit per month is very shocking. If it is that high, then we in the ministry are in a lot of trouble.
I can say with surety that pastoral burnout and conflict are the main sources of stress on us ministers. Moral failure is a rarity, but the other two happen everyday. The pressure upon me since I became a minister is way beyond anything I experienced when I was a banker/lender.
