I’ve worked in churches for 15 years, and as I have deconstructed, I’ve stayed. Partly due to fear of leaving and partly because I hoped to be a different voice or perspective. It’s clear now I can’t make it work anymore. Trying to come to terms with this and how to survive until I find another job. 🙄

Worked bi-vocationaly at the same church for 8 years straight out of college. Parted ways a few months ago. Thankfully I have a day job that mostly pays the bills. Not sure where things will go now, but just wanted to join with the others telling you that you aren't alone.

@BrittBlack I'm now entering my fourth year out of church work. Pragmatically, there are a ton of transferrable skills from church work to the marketplace. Happy to share more if the process I went through to identify those if you're interested...



@adamcaldwell thank you! I’m emailing you now. Appreciate the practical help.
