The Corps of Pastors in the USA/Canada Region, Church of the Nazarene, 2017

White Paper

This study of the corps of pastors continues a series of studies of the corps of pastors in the Church of the Nazarene. The series began in 1988 when the Church Growth Research Center, responding to a request from the Board of General Superintendents, conducted an analysis of the corps of pastors of the Church of the Nazarene in the United States and Canada. Since then a similar study has been conducted approximately every ten years. The primary source of data for the series has been the ministerial records maintained by the General Secretary of the Church of the Nazarene. The 2017 edition looks at pastor age, church size, community type, education, bi-vocational status, tenure, and the question of a pastoral shortage.
