Ministers and finances: Content with little?

An evangelical group’s survey found “bleak state” in these results of ministers’ finances:

The survey reveals that 30 percent of pastors have student loan debt averaging $36,000; 33 percent have less than $10,000 in retirement funds; and 29 percent have no retirement savings.

The survey also revealed that a minority received financial orientation in their ministerial studies.

Makes one wonder how evangelists, preachers, missionaries, and elders supported by our people are doing financially.

One suspects that many are, like the apostle to the Gentiles, learning the secret of contentment with little, Php 4.12.
