(Worthy News) – While some churches across the country are shaking off the financial effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, a new survey of pastors reveals the troubled economy is now having an adverse financial effect on their churches as well.
A Lifeway Research study of U.S. Protestant pastors found that 52% say the current economy is having a negative impact on their ability to operate. For 40%, the economic circumstances aren’t having any effect. Fewer than 1 in 10 pastors (7%) say the current economy is a positive factor for their churches.
The study noted the economic outlook among the pastors has grown more worrisome this year than in recent years. Just last year, around half of the pastors polled (49%) said the economy was having no impact. [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]
