Abstract
A leading cause for pastors leaving the ministry is a weak spiritual life. As a result, their experience of ministerial crises are defeating. The purpose of this research was to determine the relationship between ministerial crises and pastors' spiritual lives. The information was gathered from United Methodist pastors in Kentucky through an interview process. Findings revealed that those pastors who have a growing spiritual edge in their lives and ministry generally survive crises; whereas, pastors that do not struggle.
