The annual Ministers’ Compensation Survey obtains information regarding the compensation practices generally followed by churches in Canada and the United States for pastors working full-time in the parish ministry. The survey report is shared broadly with the churches and classes in the hope that it will be useful to church councils and others as reference material when matters involving compensation and benefits for ordained ministers are considered.
