Every church wants to provide as generously as possible for its pastor and parsonage family. But some churches structure compensation in ways that hurt rather than help their ministers.
With this in mind, Pensions and Benefits USA has prepared a presentation on structuring pastoral compensation. This video (also available as a podcast) features Don Walter, P&B USA director, who offers easy to understand, step-by-step guidelines to help church treasurers and ministers with this important responsibility.
Even with limited dollars, most churches can take steps to stretch the compensation and benefits for their pastors—if they know how. We encourage every church board and minister to view or listen to this presentation before creating their next annual budget.
