We Help the Helpers, and Those They Help

In 2022 the media began reporting on “The Great Resignation,” the massive clergy resignation that took place post-pandemic. Studies emerged, and in December of 2023, we learned that more than half of clergy gave serious consideration to quitting. In fact, clergy are demonstrating PTSD symptoms at rates higher than the military.  The cause? "immense stress,” “lonely and isolated,” “current political divisions,” and the effect ministry service has on family.

Stories emerged of clergy resignations "from the pulpit" or in congregation meetings. Accusations of job abandonment became common. Clergy taking early retirement, having mental health breakdowns, and even committing suicide became commonplace.

We acknowledge these challenges and make a continued commitment to prevent clergy from reaching such a severe state. THE PARSONAGE PROJECT commits to providing clergy resources to build resiliency, unite and care for their communities, and to provide a safe space for clergy to rest and recuperate as they consider their next steps in ministry.

THE PARSONAGE PROJECT is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity serving clergy and those they help. Won't you be a part of our work and contribute today?
