New Study Finds Most Pastors Feel Supported and Energized

American Pastors Network Aims to Be a Resource and Support System to Pastors Around the Nation, Helping Them Speak Truth from the Pulpit

With Pastor Appreciation Month now concluded, parishioners can rest assured that their gestures of thankfulness did not go unnoticed, as a new study from Barna research found that most pastors feel supported and energized.

The call to pastoral ministry has its unique benefits and challenges, which Barna explored in partnership with Pepperdine University in a major study of how Protestant senior pastors in the U.S. navigate life and leadership in an age of complexity. TheAmerican Pastors Network (, which frequently welcomes George Barna to its radio ministry, “Stand in the Gap Today,” aims to be a support system to pastors around the country by offering useful resources, motivating events and fulfilling relationships with fellow pastors.

“Serving God’s call as a pastor may be one of the most challenging occupations in the world, but it can also be one of the most rewarding,” said APN President Sam Rohrer. “Therefore, it’s encouraging that most pastors feel fulfilled in their roles, as well as supported by those around them and energized by their work.”

Pennsylvania Pastors NetworkInforms Residents About Biblical and Constitutional Perspective of Property Taxes for Today’s Election

The Pennsylvania Pastors Network ( is informing Pennsylvania voters about a question on the Nov. 7 ballot regarding a Constitutional Amendment on residential property taxes. Specifically, PPN is educating residents that this issue is indeed both biblical and constitutional.

PPN is a state chapter of the American Pastors Network(, led by its president, Sam Rohrer, who spent 18 years as a Pennsylvania legislator and was well-known for his property tax elimination plan.

During the many years he committed to this issue, Rohrer often reminded residents about the history of taxation, that it was not needed at Creation or for a long time thereafter. As the government was formed, a small government imposed small taxes.

“Taxes in and of themselves are not wrong,” Rohrer said. “Historically, taxes as a general rule tended to be imposed on foreigners or conquered peoples in the form of forced tribute.  They were usually not imposed on citizens. Throughout the time of the Roman Empire to our founding, countries with a government continued to impose a range of taxes.  Most all were burdensome, the result being generally two classes of people—the wealthy and the poor—until a middle class developed.”

Rohrer added that throughout history, a clear and focused emphasis was on the right to own and keep private property. Then, the concept of private property was equal to liberty itself.

Taking God for Granted

In a few short weeks, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. As children of God, we have much to be thankful for. But when was the last time you stopped to tell God “Thank you” for who He is or for something He’s done for you? Have you ever found yourself taking Him or His blessings for granted?

Please listen to this week’s timely Stand in the Gap Minute program as Sam examines the life of Job to remind us of the importance of being thankful.

For a 60-second investment of your time, and a 5-second Facebook post or Tweet, you will help your friends consider this vital question: Have you said “Thank you” yet to God today?
