Protestant pastor on the job hunt? Good luck in this market
from The Tennessean via USA Today
Too many preachers, too many small churches and a bad economy make this one of the worst job markets for Protestant ministers in decades. According to the
Yearbook of American and Canadian Churches
, there are more than 600,000 ministers in the United States but only 338,000 churches. Many of those are small churches that can't afford a full-time preacher. Among Presbyterians, there are four pastors looking for work for every one job opening.
