The 2018 MegaChurch Compensation Report is READY for purchase

We are pleased to release the 12th Annual Church Compensation Services MegaChurch Compensation Report to our participants. This year's report includes data for 100 positions in 23 ministries from 114 churches representing 19,251 employees. We have made some changes to this year’s report based on trends we’re seeing in church hiring practices and structures. This includes fewer job titles and broader responsibilities. We’ve collapsed titles in the ministry, worship, and creative arts families, and identified ministry-specific designations. A section on Employee Benefits has also been included.

What is a Compensation Survey?

Comparable data from published and private compensation survey sources to help determine the fair market value of positions within their industry, geographic area and size. A third party is used to compile the data and report it in a way so that no one organization's data may be identified. 

The MegaChurch Compensation Survey was developed to meet the unique needs of large and growing churches in the United States. Our survey includes positions specific to large churches that are not available in other church or not-for-profit compensation surveys.

Why should you participate?

It is common practice for churches to participate in these surveys on a regular basis by reporting data for matching positions within their own organization. The availability of data reported for any given position or scope is dependent upon the number of churches participating. Your participation increases sample sizes and availability of data relevant to your church.

Please encourage comparable size churches in your region and denomination to participate. You will receive $100 off any order when you refer a NEW participant in the MegaChurch Compensation Survey.
