Let me give you some statistics* about the life of many pastors today. 

    • A little over 80% of pastors and their spouses currently or frequently struggle with discouragement, disappointment or depression.
    • More than 40% of pastors feel they lead lives that are too busy and they often feel guilt over it because their children are the ones who suffer most.
    • The majority of pastors feel the church, or the way that they "did church", has had a negative impact of their families.
    • 40% of pastors experience serious conflicts with a parishioner on a monthly basis.

(*These statistics were taken from  George Barna and James Dobson)
