Fletch and Monty Kelso shared a conversation about salaries and retirement. Monty is the President of SlingShot Group. Slingshot guides churches with staff searches and helps many with compensation issues. Fletch and Monty took a “hey Fletch” question about a senior pastor who opted out of Social Security. The pastor had only saved $300,000 to pay for his retirement. How would the pastor support himself? Should the church give a lifetime salary to the pastor? These are real questions for pastors as they hit the ages of 60, 65 and 70. Fletch and Monty talk through the issue and give vital thoughts to pastors.
