Supply Pastors - Lay Speakers

Compensation for a supply pastor on a regular basis should meet the guidelines, using the part-time formula for a pastor when the contract involves less than full time service. Click here for compensation guidelines.

Where a congregation needs only worship leadership, a pulpit supply pastor or lay speaker may be contracted.*  A weekly compensation of approximately $150, plus travel expenses (current IRS recommended mileage) is a fairly standard amount for that service. An additional amount is to be added if the church involves more than one service.

*Please note-Lay speakers should not be used for consecutive Sundays or long term pulpit fill.  Only ordained clergy can administer the sacraments.
