My wife and I are going through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University with our church right now, and I’ve been diving into it head first. Never in my life did I think that it was possible for a Youth Pastor, on a Youth Pastor’s Salary, to actually be able to get off of living from paycheck to paycheck. So I’ve been researching bank accounts, reading articles, selling what we can, and really just going all in with Dave’s mantra “Live like nobody else, so you can live like nobody else.”
Yesterday, I was reading an article on his site and found this stat that kind of blew me away
53% of Christians have not given to their Church in the last month.
Now, that stat alone is pretty mind boggling. But it also got me wondering, after a conversation with some other Youth Pastors, about what percentage of Youth Pastor’s are actively tithing or not tithing.
I remember for a while when I was younger, I took what would be my tithe and instead of giving it to the church, gave it to people in need. In the below survey, I’m defining Tithing as going directly to the church. Thanks for participating!
