Discover the Latest Findings in the 2023 Church Staff Health Report


As church leaders, we understand the critical role that a healthy and engaged staff plays in the success of our ministry. That's why we are excited to announce the release of the highly anticipated 2023 Church Staff Health Report.


This comprehensive report provides valuable insights into the well-being of church staff across the nation, equipping leaders like you with the knowledge and tools to cultivate a thriving work environment. In this blog post, we will highlight five of the major findings from this report, which is packed with seventeen key findings and dozens of minor ones.


FINDING: Opportunities for Building Relationships Outside of Work

According to the report, 40% of church staff expressed the desire for more opportunities to socialize and build relationships outside of work. Fostering a sense of camaraderie among your team members can greatly enhance their job satisfaction and overall well-being.


FINDING: Job Satisfaction and Overall Happiness

The report revealed that 36% of church staff rated their overall job satisfaction as "unhappy" or "neutral." Understanding the factors that contribute to job satisfaction is crucial for creating a work environment that fosters fulfillment and promotes the longevity of staff members.


FINDING: Impact and Purpose

An encouraging finding from the report is that nearly 8 in 10 church staff members feel like their work is making a positive impact in the church and community. Recognizing and celebrating the impact of their efforts can further fuel their motivation and dedication.


FINDING: Clear Direction from Church Leadership

43% of church staff indicated that church leadership does not provide clear direction for the staff. Clear and effective communication from leadership is essential for aligning staff members towards a common vision and enabling them to work cohesively.


FINDING: Clarity in Role Expectations

Over one-third of church staff members expressed a lack of clarity in their current role expectations. Providing clear guidelines and regular feedback can help staff members understand their responsibilities, increase job satisfaction, and improve overall performance.
