As we start our 9th year of business working with churches and pastors, one thing has been very consistent. Week in and week out, there are always more visits to our site www.MinisterSearch.com on Mondays.

I wonder why, after the weekend, staff are checking out what (other) positions are open.

While our business makes money by helping churches fill open positions, our purpose is to help churches and staff find long-lasting ministry relationships not change from job to job. Our desire is to see churches fill new positions because of ministry growth and expansion not because a staff member has left.

Why do you think more church staff look for a new job on Mondays than any other day of the week? And what can be done about that?
