Compensation is the largest stewardship decision a Christian leader makes for your organization. For churches, 45 to 60% of your operating budget is made up of Compensation (Salary/Hourly + Benefits). As you begin compensation planning this year, we’re looking to help you consider the areas where you can make a meaningful impact by offering benefits to your employees that allow them to reduce their out-of-pocket on necessary expenses.

For you to attract the best candidates for your organization, you need a competitive compensation package. Learn why benefits drive engagement more than base pay.

We have a database of over 5,500 salaries to provide you with salary comparisons by your zip code for cost of living adjusted reports. Connect with our team or check out this page to learn more.

As pastors face one of the most uncertain and challenging times, it’s important they feel supported and appreciated to help them into the next season of leadership. Here's the best way to compensate your hard-working pastor in a year like no other.
