Why We Need Pro-Pastor People (w/ Dan Nichols) – Episode 219

Dan Nichols has been a friend of 95Network for many years. His work with The Northeast Collaborative significantly impacts churches of all denominations in the northeastern United States. Dan recently reached out to Dale to share some insight from a new article he had written about the stressful situations that many pastors find themselves in as they lead their churches.

Key Takeaways

1) The “damn” sandwich is taken a devastating toll on small and mid-size church leaders. There has to be an intentional effort from within the congregation to focus on pastoral health from the side of the laity.

2) Dan believes we are currently in the largest pastoral leadership crisis in American history. . . And he has the stats to back up his belief! 

3) The average age of lead pastors will rise to 60 years old in 2024.

4) 40% of pastors have said they’ve considered quitting post-Covid. . . Many already have!
