Luke 10:7 (more statistics)


Recommended Posts

Hi all

A laborer is worthy of his hire/wages (fx. Luke 10:7)

(most employers will gladly quote this) :-)

The wages should be worthy of the laborer

(not many employers quote this) :-)

(neither does many laborers for that matter) :-(

The take in of money and donations in the Christian communities in the US comes to about 100. 000. 000. 000 $ a year.

Each pastor (Greek for shepherd) recieves on average 84.000 $ per year.

5% of the 100 billion is used on the needy and other beneficial projects, the rest is used for expenses - and God forbid - profits!

Perhaps some of it ends in the Vatican strongbox?



p.s. the amount in US is approximately 50% higher per capita than the comparable amount used in Denmark.

OK, here is the way they work for a pastor.


Factors that impact the minister’s salary package:


* Congregation size

* Congregation’s socioeconomic level

* Role responsibilities – what does the church expect

* Years of experience

* Highest level of education completed

* Current staff salaries

* Personal and professional strengths

* Local cost of living


Don’t undermine the appeal of non-financial forms of compensation.


Smaller churches bemoan the fact that they often cannot afford a “high quality” minister. However, pay is only one small way a church can compensate the minister.


Other alternatives include:


* Extra vacation time

* Part time work expectations

* Support a minister’s hobby or related work project – like a writing ministry

* Frequent sabbaticals


Factors that impact or limit what a church can or is willing to pay:


* Budget limitations

* Current staff salaries

* Desire to be good stewards – offer enough without being taken advantage of

* An amount that is maintainable

* An amount that is not subject to the criticism of the majority of the church

* Expectations of the minister

* Expectations of the minister’s wife

* Education, age, experience, and skill set


Factors that may impact a minister's salary:


* Family needs

* Sense of worth

* Fear of being taken advantage of

* Desire to be financially independent

* Wife’s working situation (works in the home or out of the home)

* Fear of criticism from church leaders

* Performance expectations

* Education, age, experience, skills


If a minister has been responsible with his or her income, who would you rather entrust as a steward of God, resources with the salary?

Our Salary with resources?


The above is from a minister who wrote the concerns NOT BY ME.
