This is a short course in Church Salaries

The unique core of XPastor’s work on compensation is the “big tamale” survey. This lists the major positions in a church, from Senior Pastor to Executive Pastor, from Youth Pastor to Administrative Assistant. Knowing the various salaries within a church helps you understand salaries as bands or percentages within a church.

XPastor has been conducting salary surveys for ten years and collected millions of dollars in compensation data.
