Leadership Network’s bi-annual Large Church Salary, Staff and Benefits research by Dr. Warren Bird has served executive teams as the gold-standard for compensation benchmarks since 2001. Our free Executive Summary is downloaded by thousands of pastors each year, and hundreds of churches purchase our custom tools and reports to assist them as they review staff compensation packages and create offers for potential new team members.
As the title of the executive summary suggests, this report will unpack 7 staffing and compensation benchmarks revealed through our research of 13,039 employees from 1,043 large churches in the U.S. and Canada.These latest insights cover a variety of topics, including:
- How does local cost of living affect church compensation?
- Do founding pastors earn more than successor pastors?
- How does the rate of a church’s growth (or lack of growth) affect salaries?
- Along with many surprising facts and trends as well!
