While there are some good resources out there for national compensation data and the Christian Reformed denomination provides an annual survey of ministers' compensation, there is very little data available to make good decisions on non-ordained staffing compensation, based on specific, local market comparisons. I've put together a survey for non-ordained church staff and have sent it to several area churches. If you are in a Grand Rapids area church, I'd love to have as many participants as possible. You can contact me ([email protected]), and I'll e-mail (or snail mail) you a copy of the survey.
