The lack of young pastors is a growing problem among Baptist and evangelicals in general. One part of the issue is that many young adults have been turned off by the negative aspects of the head pastor’s job, along with denominational conflicts. As churches have recognized the issue, many have stepped up to actually do something about it. Many are working to create a “call-friendly culture,” where young people are encouraged to seek out the plans that God has for them – including the possibility of full-time ministry.
