Salary Guidelines

The gift God gave were that some would be . . . evangelists, some pastors, some teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.

– Ephesians 4:11-12

Suggested Salary Guidelines For Rostered Leaders

This church affirms the universal priesthood of all its baptized members. In its function and its structure this church commits itself to the equipping and supporting of all its members for their ministries in the world and in this church. It is within this context of ministry that this church calls some of its baptized members for specific ministries in this church. —ELCA Constitution 7.11

Rationale

The 2020 Salary Guidelines for Rostered Leaders in the Metropolitan Chicago Synod are provided to assist in establishing appropriate salary packages, both for the initial call and in subsequent years. For 2020, a 1.5% cost of living increase is recommended for rostered leaders. This is based on the current Consumer Price Index of 1.7% over the past year.
