DALLAS The biennial SBC Church Compensation Survey in 2016 has been launched by GuideStone Financial Resources, along with LifeWay Research and Baptist state conventions.
Southern Baptist ministers and church employees are invited to participate in the survey, a resource used by churches of all sizes to determine fair wages and benefits. Church ministers and staff have until May 31 to complete the online survey.
Survey participants will have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win an iPad. The survey and complete contest rules are available at GuideStone.org/CompensationSurvey. The winner of the iPad will be notified via email.
Survey results are not reported individually. Compensation and benefit information can be contributed anonymously. At the conclusion of the survey, GuideStone and LifeWay will compile the submitted data and provide all users with access to the results. The survey’s results will be made available in the early fall, in time for churches considering their 2017 budgets.
“The surveys can help churches benchmark their own salary and benefits packages against churches of like size within Southern Baptist life,” said O.S. Hawkins, president of GuideStone Financial Resources.
