These stat are a little scary (mostly because I believe they are true). Fellow pastors and ministers, be on close guard of you time, family and personal rest. Congregation members, could I suggest you all be on the watch for warning signs of burnout in your pastors, and if seen, be part of the solution not part of the problem.
One of the scariest stat lines: 70% of youth workers say they have NO close friends. Yikes.
Watch out for this and many other warning signs that are all to often in ministry.
