Take the Youth Pastor compensation survey!

Welcome to the 7th 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. 

Ever year we hear how helpful it is to pastors everywhere…both Youth Pastors, and those who manage them! One way you can help is by sharing this survey to your network and on your social channels: organic growth is the fastest way to get more entries. The survey will close on November 30, 2023.

This survey is designed for United States residents only, but you’re welcome to participate if you’re somewhere else. A detailed analysis of the survey findings will be published in January 2024 and we’ll send you a download link to it at the email address you provide. Oh, and the report is totally FREE, as always.


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.
