Here is an interesting chart from LifeWay Research showing the average age of Southern Baptist Pastors. I was surprised to see that over half of all SBC senior pastors are 50+.It seems that the guys being trained now won’t be the real majority of senior pastors for several more years.
Do these numbers surprise you?
What significance does this have on the churches?
