Do You Know What The Odds Are Of A Pastor NOT Finishing Well?
Do you know what the odds are of you winning the Mega Million lottery in 2019?
Well according to a CNBC report it’s 1 in 302,000,000!
You have better odds at:
Marrying a millionaire -1 in 215 million
Being elected president -1 in 320.6 million
Getting struck by lighting -1 in 100 million
Do you know what the odds are of a pastor NOT finishing well in ministry?
Well it’s not as high as NOT winning the lotto, but it’s still pretty high.
Here's what the research shows
According to research done by J. Robert Clinton, from the leadership development department at Fuller Theological Institute, 80% of pastors never make it to what he calls “convergence.” That’s where our gifts, passions, temperament, and our life and ministry experiences all come together. It’s when we’re living and leading out of our “sweet spot,” and making our greatest contribution.
Yep you heard right. 80%! That’s pretty high odds.
According to Clinton’s research, most pastors and Christian leaders either get stuck or get derailed in what he calls the Life Maturing Stage (the most critical stage in the life of a leader) and never make it to their season of Convergence, which is usually the most fruitful and fulfilling season in the life of a leader.
Let’s beat the odds.
I can’t give you a formula for winning the lottery, but I can give you an opportunity to beat the odds at NOT finishing well in ministry.
