Abstract:
This study used a questionnaire designed to identify the professional and personal characteristics of male ministers in Arizona. Information was elicited on general demographics, careers, and personal life. Subjects were identified from lists provided by churches in the area. Fifty (n = 50) questionnaires were analyzed. Frequencies and percentages were reported as well as verbatim responses to open ended questions. The results appeared to reveal that as a group the subjects indicated service to God and fellow men/women as major reasons for entering the ministry, as definitions of success and as career goals. The majority had been in the ministry for over 20 years, considered themselves to be successful, received high levels of support from family and friends, had good marital relationships, were satisfied with their social lives, had high morale and self-esteem, and desired to remain in the ministry. Time demands, unrealistic expectations and interpersonal conflicts were the most common causes of stress reported by the clergymen.
