Clergy Salaries: Market and Mission

Historically, clergy salaries have ranged anywhere from the clergy and laity shared all resources, to where clergy were land-holding nobility. Today the market-driven professional model predominates. This Methodist clergy salary study shows a strong correlation between church size and compensation. Clergy with a multi-point charge are compensated less than clergy with a single-point charge even when the total size of their respective parishes is the same. Examine these and other market-driven findings in At Cross Purposes? Clergy Salaries: Market and Mission by Becky R. McMillan, Associate Director, Pulpit & Pew: Research on Pastoral Leadership Duke Divinity School and Matthew J. Price, Director of Analytical Research The Church Pension Group, Episcopal Church.
