How Much are Youth Pastors Earning in 2020?

Sign up now and receive the playbook when it launches in October.

Welcome to the 4th installment of the largest and most comprehensive survey ever done about Youth Pastor compensation. One way you can help out your brothers and sisters is by sharing this survey to your network and on your social channels.  The survey will close on November 30, 2020.

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 early January and we’ll send you a download link to it at the email address you provide once you are inside the survey.  Oh, and the report is totally FREE, as always.

About this year's survey...

Dan Navarra

If you’re new to the survey, my name is Dan Navarra and I’m a Youth Pastor who genuinely cares about other Youth Pastors. I’m a 15+ year ministry veteran, a Fuller Seminary MDiv graduate, and I also am directing HR and Personnel in my current role at my church with a staff of 50, counting our pre-school. Plain and simple, my desire is for this information to help you turn your calling into a sustainable career by best understanding the landscape of pastoral compensation among our tribe. Many of you have been encouraging for me personally in this endeavor over the years, and I’ve enjoyed many video consults with those who have asked for help understanding an offer letter, housing allowances, opting out of Social Security, and other compensation questions. Additionally, I do some contract work with churchsalary.com, which is an arm of Christianity Today.

I am working with Chemistry Staffing as a Church Coach to help churches make healthy and strategic hires of quality candidates. My role with Chemistry Staffing is a great fit for me; and they are going to provide me an even greater platform to continue to make myself available to Youth Pastors everywhere, under the umbrella of their company now. I couldn’t be more excited.
