Does anyone out there have any idea how many Baptist preachers are without a church and how many Baptist churches are without pastors? I was just at churchstaffing.com and in their August 19th, 2003 newsletter they report the following: “Each month, it is estimated that over 1500 pastors leave the ministry. That's every month!” I assume that they are including all denominations in their number. Do you think that this is an accurate statement? It seems high to me.
