National Study of Campus Ministries

Here's an interesting study of campus ministers, both in denominations and non-denominational ministries such as Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship.

The study is mostly descriptive, who are the chaplains and how do they see their work. A couple of findings struck me:

- Time and money. The chaplains work long hours for only modest pay--no surprise there, I suppose.

- Satisfied. They really like their jobs. 84% are satisfied or very satisfied. Only 13% plan on leaving in the next five years.

- Growing. Most find student participation increasing (67%) over the last three years. Only 24% said it remained the same and 10% said it was decreasing.

Thanks Carson for the link!
