When a church chooses or elects a pastor, it is their sole responsibility to provide some type of compensation for that pastor. The Bible is very clear in instructing the church to provide for those called into service. Many of our churches struggle in determining ways to compensate their pastor. **Thorough Comprehensive Outline (Printable Version) Link Below**
Most do not have an organized plan to help assist church leaders in determining a fair compensation package, leaving them guessing or comparing their own personal package to what a minister might make. This point of view is a dysfunctional way of providing for the needs of a pastor. There are many reasons why this approach cannot work:
These are just a few reasons why a church and pastor need to have some sort of plan before and during the course of employment. Without a plan, one plans to fail. Effective and proper planning will pay dividends for all parties involved. Our goal is to provide information that will assist the church and pastor in determining a fair compensation package.
Why is Compensation Planning Important?
Most ministers have a “dual-tax” status, which means that ministers are considered as self-employed for Social Security purposes but are usually employees for income tax purposes. For more information, please consult your accountant or IRS.
A written policy will outline expectations a church may have for its ministers, such as work hours, office hours, outside speaking engagements, hiring practices within the church, pay periods, etc. A written outline will eliminate misunderstandings from what a minister or board may seem normal. Both could have different expectations.
