Paying Your Pastor

Scott Hill at Fide-O has written a very important post about how pastors should be paid. You can access the post here: How Much Is Your Pastor Worth?

In a day and age when people think it is too expensive for their congregations to make sure their pastors can pay their bills and live comfortably, this post ought to convict those with tightwadish attitudes. Such people do not seem to understand that one of the reasons young pastors tend to leave churches quickly is because they cannot make a decent living on the salaries they are paid.

Let’s not forget that pastors, especially young ones who are seeking to become good pastors, are “worthy of double honor” and are “laborers worthy of their wages” as 1 Timothy 5 instructs us.

But then again, I only work “three hours a week.”
