Is the small, single full time clergy staff church a luxury churches can no longer afford?

"I see solid, educated, selfless, dedicated pastors around me who are full time clergy in churches of 40 to 60 in attendance. Is giving by a group this size enough to support a full time pastor adequately? Do members give per capita sufficient to cover a $50,000 or more salary cost by their minister? Depends, I suppose, on the church." - SBC Voices

Church leaders, love your pastors. Bless them. Pray for them. Treat their families with dignity and honor. And give them a raise!

“How much of a raise?” you ask. The answer is “MORE!”
