Pastors are much more educated than the average American. Over 9 out of 10 pastors (94%) graduated from college in preparation for church ministry compared to only 21 percent for U.S. adults. Three-fourths attended graduate school.
Seminaries played a larger role in preparing pastors for ministry than Bible colleges. One third of pastors (35%) attended Bible college while nearly twice as many (66%) have seminary degrees.
Despite the fact the majority of pastors had formal preparation for the ministry, many found they were unprepared for certain assignments once they were on the job.
