Found a couple of interesting links if you want to research a fair salary for youth pastors. Kevin shot us this link to an ACU study where you can download data to your hard drive in Excel format – pretty slick, but keep in mind the info is from 2005 so people are already 6-12% higher than those numbers. Also you might want to check out the 2005 GROUP Magazine study on youth pastor salaries as well. Other resources include a 2000 Christianity Today article on pastor’s pay, a YS article on the subject and don’t forget PayScale, too!
