Youth Pastor Compensation Survey

Take the Youth Pastor compensation survey!

Welcome to the 5th annual installment of The Youth Pastor’s Compensation Survey!

Are you serving as a paid youth pastor or youth ministry leader? If so, we’d love for you to take 15-minutes out of your day to participate in this Youth Pastor Compensation Survey. 

Why participate?

  • The results of this survey help those serving in paid youth ministry to understand and negotiate fair salaries for themselves.
  • The results help pave the way for future youth ministry leaders who are called to ministry but need sustainable income.
  • The results educate and encourage executive leadership to pay staff at a rate that is more comparable and fair. 

Because of the valuable information that is collected, we would love for you to encourage other youth leaders in and out of your network to take the survey (you can share the link via social media, email, text, etc.) … the more data the better.

A detailed analysis of the survey findings will be published in early January, and we’ll send you a download link to the email address you provide within the survey. And, as always, the report is totally FREE.

Time flies by quickly, and the survey will close on November 30, 2021. We encourage you to take 15 minutes out of your day to fill it out.

We appreciate your time and willingness to participate in this survey to help us gain valuable insights into church salaries for youth ministry leaders!


The survey is brought to you by Chemistry Staffing, produced and published by Dan Navarra, with general editing provided by Mark Oestreicher of The Youth Cartel.
