Compensation Study

absc logoWe Need Your Help!

Every two years, Southern Baptist church staff members are asked to participate in a Compensation Survey which aids church administrators, personnel and finance teams, and new minister search teams as they plan staff salary packages each year. The 2014 survey will begin January 2 and end May 31. The survey is quick (less than 10 minutes to complete), confidential (completely anonymous), and extremely helpful (just ask the hundreds of Arkansas churches that access it every year). Click here to enter your information. For access to the results of the 2012 study, click here. Those who participate in this year’s survey will be entered into a drawing for an iPad, so don’t delay!

Would a new church plant be effective in reaching the groups that are not presently being reached by existing congregations? According to David Olson, author of The American Church in Crisis, in 2005 the percentage of population attending an evangelical church in Arkansas was only 25.2 percent. The new 2010 census has not shown any improvement in that statistic.
