The average length of tenure for a church staff member


The amount of time in one role to hit your ministry ‘sweet spot’


The gap between ministry ‘sweet spot’ and average tenure

Recent research shows that the typical ministry staff member in a local church lasts about 3.5 years in their position. Church strategist Thom Ranier suggests that a pastor’s most fruitful years in ministry start around year 5.  Closing this gap is a huge key to ministry success and longevity.  Job Seeker Bootcamp will give you the skills to choose your next ministry job wisely to help you get to that five-year sweet spot.
