Dr. Medford Jones, Hope International University, sent leadership preparation surveys to 5,000 church leaders. Of the 1,000 senior leaders that responded, 92% indicated that their preparation lacked critical training in leadership, management and administration. 

The Barna Research Group asserts that only 2% of senior pastors in America know how to think and plan strategically. 

Research by Professional Management Institute in Tulsa reveals that 2% of leaders have a written plan, 8% plan occasionally and the other 90% simply react.
