ARTICLE: Can the Church and the minister afford each other?

Marshall_Molly_ColumnThis is an interesting article that asks a lot more questions then it answers. I particularly noted this quote which articulates my opinion that those going into occupational ministry are particularly vulnerable:

others have “spiritualized” educational debt, believing that if one followed God’s call to ministry, God would take care of the finances. While I appreciate great faith, a level of naiveté shapes some entering congregational leadership, and the economics of ministry are irreducible.
