The guys over at Resurgence.com have posted an interesting study on church life dealing with staff, worship, and pastors’ job duties. Here’s a sample:
The number of paid staff for the average congregation is three. But nearly half of all congregations have one paid staff member.
The median pastor who is paid by the congregation works about 50 hours per week.
In almost all congregations, about half of the attendees stay after the worship service to socialize for about 25 minutes.
53.4 percent of congregations have small groups meeting regularly.
