Number of Women Pastors Increases by 300 Percent in 25 Years

Over the last 25 years, the average age of the pastor in the Christian churches in America has risen from 44 to 54 years of age, according to Barna research.

Now, increasingly women are leading the failing church in the Western World. Barna research recently reported that there are three times more women serving as senior pastors now than did so in 1992. That’s a 300% increase in 25 years. 

99% of mainline pastors welcome women in official leadership positions while 44% of evangelical pastors are welcoming women leadership.

Jesus said to the church at Sardis: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die.” (Revelation 3:1-2)

Christian Leaders Intimidated by Homosexual Movement

Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, explained to The World View why he believes Christians have been overly muted in the public square on the topic of homosexuality.

“The LGBTQ movement has – they’ve been very effective in seminaries, in colleges and universities, on television and the media, social media as portraying people who object to their lifestyle as being hateful, as being bigots.

“Christians don’t want to be called that. They don’t engage on the topic because they don’t want to be called those names or presented in that way. They end up abdicating their responsibility Scripturally to tell the truth because the Bible clearly teaches that homosexuality is a sin.

 “Quite frankly, the other part of it is cowardice. A lot these Christian leaders and pastors they are scared of confronting that issue because they see what happens to people who do confront that issue. So they just run for the tall grass when it comes to that issue.”
