For NAD Pastors
Solo Pastor – The majority of pastors across the Division shepherd one or multiple congregations. Fifty-two percent of all congregations meeting each Sabbath have 100 or fewer members and maybe only 40% or fewer of those members actually attends services. There are even “super-districts” in some Conferences where one pastor equips the ministry of 5-10 congregations, similar to what is frequently found in Africa, Asia and Central America. With 50% of all congregations in rural (21%) or small towns (29%), it is very possible that you are spending as much time in your car making your way from church to church as you are engage in ministry activities. NAD Ministerial Department is here for you with prayer support, leadership training, resources, coaching and more.
