How can we be of help?

A Leader Wrote

Two of the challenges of leading and serving a church is ensuring that employees are fairly compensated while at the same time maintaining a healthy staff operating budget. Requesting the guidance of David Fletcher and XPastor was one of the best decisions we made when we realized the complexity of this task.

David’s extensive experience in compensation audits and diligent research into our church culture provided us a learning experience that has set us up for success for years to come. We now have the tools and know-how to effectively make adjustments to our staffing and compensation strategy while at the same time honoring our hard-working staff members.

He also helped us uncover some pay-structure practices that could land us in trouble in an audit and helped us to navigate how too quickly but carefully adjust those practices. Our church is on a much healthier trajectory and solid compensation footing with his help.
