Staffing, Class 3: Compensation The Puritans supposedly said, “God, you keep our pastors humble and we will keep them poor.” At what standard should church staff live at? How do you determine fair and just pay? This session will present the elements and examples of excellent staffing pay grids. The role of a compensation analysis will be explored. This all goes into the annual process of determining raises and the potential role of bonuses. For the Q&A time, consider questions that address the motive and method in compensation, not just the numbers.

Why a Salary Grid The Salary Guide gives a metric to examine titles and salaries. By establishing fair, national-level salaries, The Salary Guide retains quality staff. By having quads, the process of giving raises has standards and pre-determined levels of accomplishment and skill. The Salary Guide is reviewed every two or three years.
Identify Problems Mismatches of titles with positions Some newer pastors are not receiving a housing allowance and are receiving social security Some women function as “commissioned” directors and should be receiving housing allowances. The annual review process is under study and improvement. Some staff are being underpaid, less than Quad 1. The most pressing issues will be addressed in the coming fiscal year. Some issues will take several years to resolve.
