Ministers Compensation Report Now Online

2020 news 1The 2020 Ministers Compensation Report is now available from Pensions and Benefits USA. This guide presents compensation statistics for Nazarene ministers by USA regions. It is compiled by Nazarene Research Services from information collected in the Annual Pastor’s Report and the USA/Region Supplement. Pensions and Benefits USA formats the data to create this reference tool.

“We prepare this report annually to assist district superintendents and local church boards in the structuring of compensation packages for our pastors,” said Kevin P. Gilmore, director of Pensions and Benefits USA. “It is just one of several resources we produce in an effort to help churches offer equitable compensation packages to those who serve them.”

Gilmore added that those who use the report should keep in mind that salaries and benefits are affected by variations in the cost of living across regions, as well as ranges in church size, budget, and personnel.
