It is expected that all congregations should provide a living wage to their pastors and other church workers. However, in exceptional times such as those of emergency or illness, congregations may be called on to give increased support to their pastors or church workers and their families. The resources provided aid congregations in finding ways to give and support.
The Finance section of the Church Worker Wellness page provides resources to aid in financial assistance in times a need, beyond a living wage.
