Standing Stone Ministry Elephant in the Room

Ministry couples are “the elephants in the room”. Peter Drucker says, “The four hardest jobs in America (not necessarily in order) are: President of the United States, a university president, a hospital CEO, and a pastor.”

Many governing boards of churches and Christian organizations have an “elephant in the room”. Statistics show that the risks to these ministry couples are overwhelming. Many are dangerously close to burnout and their marriages are in peril. The media loves to print the “juicy stories” when a Christian leader falls. The impact on the organization is devastating. In some cases it can be the demise of the organization. The economic loss is often times enormous, but the biggest loss is to the Kingdom.
