Smart Money for Church Salaries

Dan Busby
President of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability

Establishing a fair and legally compliant compensation structure for your church is critical—and it won’t happen by accident! The new, one-day XPastor Compensation Workshop is just what you need for an engaging, deep dive into the key areas of compensation that your church must have soundly addressed. Bravo, XPastor, for offering this much-needed resource!

Former XP, church consultant, and author of Charting the Course: Navigating the Legal Side of a Church Plant

Fletch’s mastery of all things related to church administration permeates every page of his latest book, Smart Money for Church Salaries.  This “one stop shopping” not only provides the means to reliably, fairly, and appropriately set church staff salaries, it is a comprehensive primer to navigate the legal labyrinth of church salary regulations and policies. His story telling approach is legendary Lencioni-style … I couldn’t put the book down. This is a “must” desk reference volume for every XP.

David Fletcher knows the financial side of churches like few others. Whatever he prepares is always substantial and sound.

Developing a total rewards system that addresses the needs of both pastoral and non-pastoral staff, while being good stewards of the resources entrusted to us as leaders, takes great wisdom and experience. David brings both of these to the conversation with a pastor’s heart and a firm grasp on employer/employee relations. There is no better resource to tap.

Sam Chand
Leadership Consultant and author of Bigger Faster Leadership

Everyone, and I mean literally everyone will learn new information communicated in such a refreshing format. David Fletcher has brought together his decades of church leadership into this wise book. Smart Money for Church Salaries is a gift to the Church. This book will change how you do church governance and compensation. I would highly recommend this to all senior church leadership. With this book, ignorance is no excuse. Brilliant. Helpful. Blessing.
