Take a look at these 10 points, then pray and ask God: What area do I really need to address? Where am I struggling?
Once you identify the reasons why a pastor leaves church and the areas where you need to improve, take these three steps:
1. Ask for help. If you’re struggling, there is absolutely nothing wrong with asking someone for help.
2. Institute accountability. Find a group or person to keep you accountable in the areas you think you are weak.
3. Take ownership of your choices. More than anyone else, you control the path you walk.
Take actions and precautions to make sure you understand why a pastor leaves church, and don’t let any of these 10 reasons separate you from your passion for the ministry and your calling.
