UMC Salary Study

Salaries for United Methodist Clergy in the U.S. Context,
A study by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry

How much salary do United Methodist clergy receive? How are we doing as a church in terms of providing clergy salary as we strive to create a culture of equity for all? When we talk about clergy salaries in The United Methodist Church, should gender and race matter? These were the initial questions that the Salary Study Committee asked in the beginning of
this study in March 2008.
