2017 Clergy Well-Being Survey Report

The 2017 Clergy Well-Being Survey Report has been posted. The 100-question online survey was sent to 4,000 UMC clergy—1,360 responded (34% return), representing a cross-section of active clergy by jurisdiction, gender, race/ethnicity, age and clergy status. Multiple dimensions of well-being (physical, emotional, financial, social and spiritual) and the vocational setting were explored. These factors are found to influence our unique population and continue to be the focus of Wespath’s well-being efforts.

The Center for Health has published its latest Center for Health Newsletter and Bulletins—tools to support you and your populationís “path to well-being”, with useful and practical information based on the five dimensions of well-being and the influence each dimension has on the others. This quarter’s issue focuses on the spiritual dimension, and how things like getting outside and giving the church over to God can lead to improved spiritual well-being.

We encourage you to share this newsletter (or specific articles or bulletins as relevant) with your population as you deem appropriate.
