Select Group of Peer Churches

This is a special cut of data from the Megachurch Compensation Report. You select the churches from the 2016 and 2017 Megachurch Compensation Report that you want to include. We recommend including at least 8-10 churches, as there must be a minimum of 5 churches matched to each of the positions for us to report the data. The more churches included in the Peer Group, the more robust the data. We can include your church in the results to ensure a higher number of positions with sufficient data. The report will include the list of 157 positions, number of churches and employees matched to each and the average base salary of the selected churches.
