Determining pay in a church setting is one of the most difficult portions of church staffing and team building. Job descriptions vary widely as do the people filling positions, which can make assessing the proper pay for a new hire or a current church staff member feel nearly impossible.
No matter what role you serve on your church staff, disorder and hectic days are bound to creep into even the most organized of people’s days.
