A Fresh Look at Clergy Salaries in the 21st Century

Most Protestant churches determine a pastor's salary by analyzing the marketplace. According to recent research, however, current ministry pay scales are too low to allow clergy to live comfortably, and the failure of denominations to address that problem causes clergy to focus more on climbing the career ladder than responding to God's call. To correct the problem, authors Becky McMillan and Matthew Price suggest that faith communities consider more regulation and cooperation between congregations and among denominations, especially to create more livable wages and benefits for clergy serving small churches. Read the report, How Much Should We Pay the Pastor?: A Fresh Look at Clergy Salaries in the 21st Century. A related summary of the research is also available.
