Churches (and thusly their pastors) often fail by running into a wall or falling off a cliff. A majority of these issues are usually avoidable with prior planning or having a ministry philosophy for the church that accounts for various contingencies. Remember not planning is a plan, it just happens to be a really bad plan.
