How Much Should Church Staff Get Paid?

No one gets into ministry for the money. But does that mean church leaders should be paid less? In this episode, Tony and Amy share a biblical foundation for paying staff well, how to practically make it possible, and some simple ways to evaluate how much you should be paying the staff at your church.

Tony also gives podcast listeners the very first sneak peek of a new resource from The Unstuck Group to help pastors lead unstuck churches. You’ll find more at

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The biblical foundation for how much churches should pay staff

  • Who should have the responsibility of setting salaries at your church

  • What % of the church budget should be spent on staffing

  • How to evaluate whether or not you’re paying staff enough (or too much)
