Why Do Pastors Get Fired?

Butch Blume wrote an article for the Baptist Courier’s July 8th edition that provides insight for the reason why pastors are terminated. It seems to be an issue of control based on research done by Monte Hale of the South Carolina Baptist Convention. There has been a perception in some circles that small churches are more difficult to lead due to the issues mentioned in this article. As the first sentence of the article states:

A growing number of pastors are being forced to leave their churches over what a South Carolina Baptist Convention official calls “control issues.”

Is this true in other state conventions and does the size of the church matter in these situations?
