About Us

The Equitable Compensation committee is responsible for recommending the base compensation standards to the annual conference. Local churches not able to pay the full amount of the equitable or minimum compensation may receive supplemental funds from the annual conference. These funds are provided through the Equitable Compensation Fund, which is apportioned to all of the local churches.

This committee supports full-time clergy serving as pastors in the conference by:

  • recommending standards for pastoral support
  • administering funds to be used in base compensation supplementation
  • providing guidance for superintendents and committees on pastor-parish relations
  • submitting an arrearage policy for the conference
