The objective of this study was to investigate ministers’  job demands and  job resources using a qualitative design (n = 9). Fifteen themes emerged from the interviews. A cross-sectional survey design was used to study ministers’ experiences of job demands and job resources (N = 115). A principal factor analysis with a varimax rotation resulted in eight reliable factors. These factors included as job demands: pace and amount of work and emotional demands; and as job resources: growth opportunities,  instrumental support, congregational support, autonomy, social support and job significance.
