Nelson Searcy gives his perspective on staff spouses: The key to avoiding issues with spouses (like so much else on a church staff) is 100% crystal clear communication from the beginning. In other words, no matter what you expect from the spouses of your staff, they need to know that before they’re hired. Read more here… What is your church’s policy on staff spouses?

EverythingPastor writes, “How do you leave something that you love? That’s the question I’ve been asking myself for the past couple of weeks. On October 4th, I put in my 60 day notice at my church. I’ve been here four years and have loved every step of the way. We had always assumed that we would be at Greenwood forever, but about six months ago, God became to change our hearts and as a result we feel he’s re-ignited our passions for missions and church planting. We were always planning to church plant, we just thought that we be overseas and not in America. It’s been such a growing process for our family. Now that our decision is public, we have to deal with everything that comes from resigning from a ministry. Here are his bullet points: 1.  Think about who to tell first 2.  Expect to be a lame duck 3.  Let Go 4.  Tell those you care about how you feel 5.  Leave the bridges entact 6.  Prepare the way for the next person Take a read here. As you’ve left ministries and jobs over the years, what have been the most important things you would add to this list? What mistakes have you made in ministry job transitions? I’d love to hear.  Leave a comment below; and share this post with your friends using the buttons below as well…

You think your job sucks?  You may have just gotten some confirmation.  According to this article from CNNMoney.com, two major church roles have the distinction of being the most stressful jobs that pay badly!

Coming in at #5:  Music Ministry Director

Median pay: $40,800 % who say their job is stressful: 67% You may not think of people who plan, direct and conduct performances for religious services as being under a particularly high amount of stress. But they also choose the appropriate psalm or hymn for every wedding and funeral — only some of the most important events in a family’s life. And those stressful situations can create some demanding clients. “Every now and then you’ll get a strange request,” said Dan Fenn, Music Ministry Director at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Northfield, Minn. “A couple of years ago I got a request to play the Beer Barrel Polka at a funeral. You have to ask yourself, is this appropriate for a worship service?” Coming in at #10:  Minister Median pay: $45,300 % who say their job is stressful: 71% They may answer to a higher calling, but all that spirituality does not come stress free. It’s a lot of responsibility being an authority on morality. Leading religious worship every week and providing spiritual and moral guidance can be a heavy cross to bear for those in the ministry. “People who are deathly sick, people with substance abuse problems, things of that nature, that can be emotionally draining,” said Father Dan Skvir of Princeton, N.J. “I’ve had calls at 2 or 3 in the morning to come and attend to someone, people in imminent danger of death.” You can read more here… What do you think?
