We have had this sense that a way larger than normal quantity of paid youth workers are:
- Losing their jobs
- Deciding it’s time to step out of vocational ministry
- Thinking about stepping out of vocational ministry
And with the new data that came out from Barna reporting a huge spike in all pastors considering a move out of vocational ministry, we thought it might be helpful to take the pulse of our tribe. Our friend Todd Freneaux of The Jeremiah Project actually suggested this survey, and we immediately felt it could be helpful.
If you’re a paid youth worker (or have been at any time in the last two years), we’re asking you to take three minutes (really, it will not take long) and click-through two links:
- First, click here to take the completely anonymous survey.
- Then, if you’d like, click here to separately give us your name and email address (separately, so no one can connect your survey responses with your name or email), and we’ll send you a free copy of the results in January.
The survey will close on December 15 (but don’t put it off!).
