SBC Church Compensation Survey

SBC Church Compensation Survey

California Southern Baptist Convention is cooperating with GuideStone Financial Resources and LifeWay Research to collect information for a biennial SBC Church Compensation Survey in 2018. Ministers and church employees are invited to participate in the survey, a resource used by churches of all sizes to determine fair wages and benefits. Your participation is vital to the biennial SBC Church Compensation Survey.

Participants will have the opportunity to win an iPad. The survey and complete contest rules are available at GuideStone.

Survey results will be made available in the early fall, in time for many churches considering their 2019 budgets. The survey is the largest free, church compensation study conducted in the United States. The most recent survey results – from 2016 are based on compensation for some 14,000 respondents from 40 states.

Why take the survey?
Simply put, for the benefit of your church and churches similar to yours.

When participants complete the survey, customized reports allow administrators, personnel/finance committees and minister search teams to better determine adequate compensation for ministers and staff. Accordingly, a higher number of survey participants leads to a more accurate baseline of compensation. That can be essential for thousands of churches, including your own, which makes the survey worth the five to eight minutes it takes to complete.
