According to internet rumors the people bishop, Bishop T.D. Jakes has given three main reasons pastors are committing suicide:
1). Pastors are far too overworked.The pastor must perform many duties, according to Jakes who is a pastor of over 30,000 members. Then Jakes cites examples of the many things a pastor must do.
2). Pastors are underpaid.
3). Pastors are discouraged by the reactions of some of their congregation when something goes wrong.
In my opinion I think many of today's pastors are taught to run "THEIR MINISTRY" like a corporation including goal setting, marketing, public relations and then measure their success with the worlds yard stick. In my opinion much of this is about living a worldly life.
