Recommendations for Pastor's Salary?


A question came through via CRC chat this week from a treasurer working on the 2021 budget for his church. The treasurer asked: In the past, the CRCNA had recommendations for a pastor's salary. Do you have current recommendations or survey to help me in this process? 

I thought I would post his question in case others were wondering the same thing. I have posted the response in the comments. Hope this helps!

Yes, the CRCNA provides the Ministers' Compensation Survey (updated annually) as reference material when matters involving compensation and benefits for ordained ministers are considered.

You can find that information in the new 2020-2021 Church Admin and Finance Guide.

John Piper and Norm Funk offer some great wisdom in this matter!
