Pastor Jerry Eze recently addressed the challenges he faces as a pastor.

In a statement, he discussed the often-overlooked challenges that some pastors face, particularly in Nigeria and elsewhere.

Pastor Eze called his path “strange,” citing incidents in which he gave his all to individuals who subsequently claimed he never existed.

He described spending hours in deliverance and counseling sessions, only to have the people he helped reject or even erase him from their lives.

The minister also mentioned how ironic it was to have people he had honored publicly malign him.

Pastor Jerry Eze also explained how different people perceive the same sermon – what is life-changing for one person may be boring or even offensive to another.

As a significant point of contention, he addressed the common accusation that pastors are primarily motivated by financial gain.

He emphasized the expectations that are put on religious leaders in terms of their lifestyle, saying that if they own nice things, they will be called materialistic and greedy, but if they live simply, they will be viewed as unlucky or unsuccessful.

Pastor Eze also talked about the sacrifices that pastors personally make, like the ongoing demands on their time, finances, and resources.

He mentioned how they are often chastised for setting boundaries to maintain their mental health and family life, which is often perceived as selfish.

Despite these challenges, Pastor Eze revealed that the role of a pastor is ultimately rewarding and life-changing, especially when viewed as a service to God.

“Pastoring is weird. I’ve poured my heart and soul into people who now act like I don’t exsist. I’ve done hours of counseling and deliverance with people who later deleted me. I’ve publicly honored people who chose to slander me and act like I was a villain. And then there’s people I rarely have conversations with that honor and respect me to the highest degree. Some leaders have washed my feet while others have thrown dirt on my name.

Pastoring is weird. I’m too much for some, yet too little for others. The same preaching that convicts one person angers another. The same sermon that was boring to one was massively impactful to another. Praised for being so loving and graceful, yet slandered for being too loving and graceful in certain situations.”
