Ministers have been cited as having higher quality of work life than individuals in any other vocation, but many also report high rates of stress.  Given the impact of leader quality of life on followers and organizations, higher levels of quality of life are important for the stability and health of churches.  In Texas Baptist churches, church members control many of the dynamics of the minister’s work situation and therefore it is helpful for congregants to understand the dynamics which influence quality of life for their pastors.
