So it’s no secret that I have a Master of Divinity. It’s also no secret that I don’t work in a church. As it stands right now, I feel that I’m discerning my future ministry.
As I was browsing through my Facebook timeline today, I stumbled across this article from the Washington Post, Seminary graduates not always ministering from the pulpit. One thing I found interesting is the percentage of MDiv grads that expect to go into full-time church ministry.
About 41 percent of master’s of divinity graduates expect to pursue full-time church ministry, down from 52 percent in 2001 and from 90-something percent a few decades ago, according to the Association of Theological Schools, the country’s largest such group.
Interesting article, and nice to see that there are more people out there like me.
