Ministry Matters

If you are a minister, watch this!  

If your mom is a minister, watch this!  

If you're considering becoming a minister, watch this!

If you've ever been to church, watch this!  

If you have a church home and you love your minister, watch this and then forward it not only to your minister but to everyone else in your church because ministry is hard and beautiful and lonely and lovely all at the same time...

Did you know that half of all ministers starting out will leave the ministry within five years?  Did you know that only 1 out of every 10 ministers will actually retire as a minister of a local congregation?  If you know and love someone who has said, "Yes!" to this broken and beautiful way of life, please send them this short film created by SALT for the Pension Fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

And, to all those who have answered the call - thank you, thank you, thank you!

Peace and perseverance,

The SALT Team

p.s.  A big SALT thank you to Rev. Julian DeShazier for his preaching and poetry - we are so glad that ministry still matters to you!
