The results of the 2014 ELCA Youth Ministry Network Salary Survey have been released! The survey, taken by almost 300 children, youth and family ministry leaders, paid and volunteer, from all the regions of the church, was taken from March 1 - April 15, 2014.
The survey looks at salary and benefits, as well as vacation and expense reimbursement across the church. It is intended not as guidelines, but rather as a snapshot of salary scales.
Data is also sliced and diced by geographic region, size of congregation, education level, gender and ELCA roster status.
The survey is designed to be used as a tool in helping congregations do budgeting and planning, and to assist in the salary negotiation process.
