Corps of Pastors USA-Can 1988

White Paper

The Board of General Superintendents asked the Church Growth Division to "write a research document dealing with ministerial needs, the projection of prospective ministers, as well as the careful analysis of what is going on now in the loss of ministers by death, retirement, and for other reasons."  This report presents the findings of the research conducted to examine the questions posed by the request of the General Superintendents.  The report is organized around five general issues: the present composition of the ministerial corps, trends in annual addition of new and attrition of experienced ministers, tenure, experience, and "Unassigned" ministers.
