Many ministers are caught in the church’s downsizing brought about by fewer members and diminishing finances. What are the warning signs that hint downsizing may be coming? How can we help ministers in mid-career retool for the next step in ministry?
I would like to hear your comments about these thought provoking questions. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These thoughts above are from Rev. Jerry Chiles, one of our partners in ministry for the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina Metroplex. He has served in various churches across the Southeast as an associate minister.
