Revised Compensation Guidelines for Rostered Ministers

A new, completely revised Rostered Ministry Compensation Guidelines has been approved by the Synod’s executive committee, and is now posted on ministrylink.org.

This manual is a resource to assist congregations and rostered ministers in conducting an annual review and determining a compensation package; pension and other benefits; agreements relative to time off for continuing education, vacation, holidays, and sick leave; and appropriate reimbursement for professional expenses. We also hope this manual will assist congregations in their budget planning process, and in the process of annually reviewing mission and ministry goals.
