  • God’s calling placed on a person’s life does not give that person the right to leave that calling.

    • Nora Neel-Toney totally agree. Many of them were not truly called.

    • They think there is big money in the church. Wrong reason to call oneself a pastor

    • I read that nationwide there are not as many singers who make their living singing and making music. Why? Because those who do get to the top can have millions of followers and thus squeeze out many others. This same thing may be affecting the ministry. Many times local people will send their money off to the ” big preachers ” Many of those who leave are starved out. Many times the people’s expectations are unreasonable and thus pastor’s can’t live up to the different expectations in the same congregation. Jesus gave his disciples permission to leave; If the people want accept you then dust off your sandals and leave.

    • Jim Price I don’t send money to the big preachers. It is important to give to the local church

  • Many more ministers should be leaving the denominational ministries. It takes courage and boldness.

  • I’m trying to read the article, but only see Web Trends from 2015. No link to Preachers leaving Ministry every 26 minutes. So are you testing me?

  • About the Documentary Betrayed from the website

    The Church, regarded as a bastion against evil, is afflicted by people perpetrating, aiding and abetting evil within its sanctuaries, parking lots and administrative offices. Individuals carrying out evil agendas are called Clergy Killers, a provocative term that is almost as shocking DVDas the immoral and often illegal acts that Clergy Killers commit against pastors of congregations.

    Abused, avoided and ultimately abandoned by the very churches they serve, pastors of mainstream denominations globally are being driven out of ministry forever. BETRAYED uncovers the growing issue of unchecked bullying against consecrated men and women working in approximately 50% of faith communities throughout the world. Bullying in the church and proposed solutions are examined and discussed by pastors of multiple denominations, their families, theologians, psychologists, lawyers, sociologists and church historians.

    Over the course of nearly four years, the investigative efforts of US Films has uncovered the answers to questions asked by Jewish rabbis and Christian pastors from around the world, questions which up to now, remained unanswered. For the first time ever and without narration, BETRAYED presents those answers which church hierarchies prefer to be kept secret. Is the Church practicing what it preaches by seeking justice and resisting evil? Not effectively. Has the Church become a corporation, where the power hungry are allowed to destroy faithful yet vulnerable ministers in order to protect the almighty dollar? It seems this is so. Is the solution – pastors uniting to end bullying and identifying Clergy Killers in the Church? BETRAYED makes a compelling case. Bullying of children and teenagers today, is an alarming travesty that must be stopped. BETRAYED is the first of a four part series, showing that bullying of clergy is also a matter of life and death.
