Powell Sr., Thomas A., "Forced Terminations Among Clergy: Causes and Recovery" (2008). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 152.
The purpose of this project is to bring attention to the issues that surround forced terminations among clergy. We will look at the available statistics, investigate the causes, read testimonies of those who have been forced out and look at plans for recovery. The author will incorporate his own testimony relating to his voluntary forced termination and describe how it affected his whole family and the recovery that followed.
