In the face of declining income and loss of members, the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD), the country’s main Protestant umbrella, is proposing sweeping organizational changes, including cutting the number of pastors by a quarter over the next twenty-five years. “If you can no longer afford to do everything then you have to set priorities,” EKD chairperson, Bishop Wolfgang Huber, wrote in an introduction to the reform proposals published by the group’s top governing body.
