By notes the senior High school group of the Baptist youth Fellowship has been meeting weekly throughout the summer. The meetings have been held at the Church in connection with varied plans Tor a summer program. The and in Survey shows most protestant churches too Small to support adequate ministry by Louis Cassels up religion editor the majority of . Protestant congregations Are too Small to support an adequate ministry. That is one conclusion that stands out from a report published this week by the National Council of churches. Entitled a the Church and its manpower management a the report presents statistics for 15 mainline protestant denominations. It shows that two thirds of their congregations have fewer than 400 members and a fourth of them have fewer than 200 members. Only one congregation out of eight has As Many As 1,000 people on its Rolls. Small congregations mean Small budgets. More than half of the local churches covered by the Survey Are trying to function on budgets of less than $20,000 a year. Small budgets in turn mean Small staffs. Nearly two thirds of the congregations have Only one salaried employee the Pas Tor. Only 36 per cent have a paid Sexton or janitor Only 28 per cent a Church Secretary Only 16 per cent a professional director of music and Only to per cent a religious education director. Furthermore the pastor who goes it alone in a Small Church without any staff to assist him is usually paid far less than his colleagues in larger churches. The median salary for pastors serving congregations smaller than 200 persons is about $1,500 a year less than that for pastors serving congregations larger than 500 persons. The Rev. Or. Ross p. Scherer director of ministry studies for the National Council of churches said the report Points up the need Tor protestants to do some creative re thinking of the Way their local churches Are organized and staffed. A probably no other institution leaves the deployment and compensation of its professionals to such a sporadic quixotic inefficient and inequitable system a he said. Jav have in a pocket of poverty ? people. People suffering indignity and injun an frustration. Whose concern Are they everybody a. Yours and mine. Because every Faith says the Well being of others is the business of everybody. See what can be done where you live then see that it gets done. How one place to Start is where you worship. It can become with your help a surprisingly important Center for initiating local programs and for generating encouragement for programs that already Are in action. And this is just one Way you can change things for the better in your Community the nation the world. Worship this week. Even More important put your Faith to work every Day.
