What is it about the weekend?

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?

    I can only speak for myself, but if you are in a place that you don’t feel is a good fit, sunday is the day that makes it more than obvious. Tuesday-Saturday you can hide in your work and ministry, but Sunday you encounter your entire community.

    Monday is my only day off and the only time I have opportunity to look at things on my home computer. Being on staycation, I am checking out lots of church websites, job sites, etc.
