The health of the pastor influences the health of the church. Too often pastors are the first in line to give help and the last in line to receive help. Unfortunately, this mindset has left them unable or unwilling to receive the love, support and encouragement they so desperately need. A recent survey showed that church member’s expectations translated to 114 hours per week minimally to carry out pastoral duties. They are expected to know everyone by name, preach a “home run sermon” every Sunday, condemn sin without hurting anyone’s feelings, and be available to serve others 24/7, all while not neglecting their own family. Now, we all know someone who has quit their job unexpectedly. Whether this is in a corporate environment or the ministry, a pastor often provides warning signs that lead to a sudden decision to quit their position. When a great pastor suddenly quits on you, there may have been signs present that were overlooked by many members of the church. Parishioners and church ministry teams need to be aware of the warning signs so they can intervene when possible and be prepared for a transition if necessary. Here are six signs your pastor has quit on you.
