Articles in Leaders & Pastors • January 24, 2017

There is still time to plan to join Barna and Pepperdine University for The State of Pastors: Leading in Complexity. Whether you attend in-person on Pepperdine’s campus in Malibu or stream the sessions online, this free event on January 26 will leave you with best practices for resilient leadership in a changing culture.

At this one-of-a-kind conference, Barna experts and guest speakers will be commenting on new data from a groundbreaking study of 10,000 pastors. Attendees and viewers will gain a fresh, timely understanding of the mental, physical, financial, emotional and spiritual well-being of today’s church leaders.

“The research itself creates a fresh and revealing look at the lives of pastors—how they handle challenges in their families, churches, and in the community,” Barna president David Kinnaman explained in a recent blog post. “We aren’t releasing any of the data before the webcast. So you’ll have to tune in to hear what we’ve been learning—and the myths we’ve been busting—about effective church leaders today.”
