SBC Church Compensation Survey available online comment (0)
February 6, 2014
DALLAS — Ministers and church employees are invited to participate in the 2014 Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) Church Compensation Survey: a GuideStone Financial Resources and LifeWay tool used by churches of all sizes to determine fair wages and benefits.
Each Southern Baptist church employee who participates in the survey plays a vital role in building one of the largest databases of church compensation information in the United States. Survey results provide a baseline of compensation data among similar-sized churches within each state convention.
The survey provides customized reports to allow administrators, finance committees and minister search teams to better determine adequate compensation for ministers and staff.
O.S. Hawkins, president of GuideStone, said, “This survey, which is one of the most comprehensive of its kind, will help scores of churches as they seek to provide for those who are called to lead their congregations.”
Southern Baptist church ministers and staff have until May 31 to complete the online survey. Survey results will be released summer 2014. Survey participants will receive advance notification of the results and can begin to access the data upon notice.
Survey results are not reported individually. Compensation and benefit information can be contributed anonymously. Participants will be entered for a chance to win an iPad.
The survey and complete contest rules are available at www.GuideStone.org/CompensationSurvey.
