What are the factors that cause pastors to give up their calling and what can be done to mitigate those factors? What can the North American Church do to encourage pastors to remain faithful to their calling to serve and lead local churches? Ultimately the purpose of this qualitative study is to discover the factors that enabled pastors in a particular context to successfully persevere under persecution and to fulfill their calling as pastors so that these principles may be applied to persecuted Christians worldwide.
