This document includes data on effective salary by job code, geography, congregation size, gender, and minister age. The 223rd General Assembly (2018) authorized Living by the Gospel to promote awareness of gender disparity in benefits and salary packages.

Ministers enrolled in Pastor's Participation or Minister's Choice are automatically enrolled in the the Temporary Disability Plan. This plan offers important financial protection by providing short-term partial income replacement benefits for members who are sick or injured and unable to work. You also may offer the plan to staff working at least 20 hours per week.
Sessions, session committees, and other church leaders making benefits decisions may call on their Board of Pensions Church Consultant for guidance about options. These consultants offer personalized assistance to churches, as well as mid councils, across the country. Find the consultant for your region.
