2022 Clergy Compensation Guidelines
The conference has released the 2022 clergy compensation guidelines. You will note that minor changes have been made from last year: a 2% cost of living increase was made to the salaries listed as well as the Social Security Offset was adjusted per the IRS guidelines for 2022. We encourage search committees to use these guidelines in the formation of their pastoral compensation packages, and additionally, we hope that our churches will refer to this tool as they adjust their current pastor's salary for the new year.  Download Guidelines PDF
