*The State of Pastors by the Barna group in partnership with Pepperdine University
Pastors need to have an active, vibrant, and ongoing personal relationship with God from which he or she can draw, particularly in times of challenge and transition. Pastors need to be spiritually growing.
Pastors need to have close relationships that extend beyond family and the local congregation. This requires the pastor to be encircled by people he or she trusts and with whom he or she is sharing life. Pastors need friendship and learning communities.
Pastors need someone who has earned deep trust and who has authority to speak directly into his or her life both in good times and in challenging times. Pastors need a mentor.
Pastors need to possess mental, financial, emotional, and spiritual health. Pastors need to be self-aware and able to manage the natural challenges of life as well as access to resources in time of need. Pastors need helpful resources for health.
