DALLAS – GuideStone Financial Resources is conducting its bi-annual survey of church compensation for ministers, support staff and custodians through April 15.
This year’s survey is being conducting via the Internet in cooperation with LifeWay Christian Resources. The website is at www.lifeway.com/compensationsurvey.
Every state convention participated in the last survey in 2006, which resulted in information from 7,000 churches and 17,000 individuals.
“Through this survey, church administrators, personnel and finance committees and minister search teams have access to accurate baseline by which they can compare their own churche’s salary and benefits with churches of similar size and budget across the country,” said an e-mail from GuideStone’s Joel Rister.
