UPFRONT: our church along with many churches have dwindled in attendance due to Covid19 and also for our congregation the retirement of our Senior Pastor. Our average attendance now is around 20 and church membership around 60. Pre-Covid membership around 100 and attendance on Sundays around 65.
We can only offer at this time a compensation of $42,000 a year (including all benefits) so actually we may be looking for a "bi-vocational lead pastor until the time our church giving grows to be able to re-negotiate a better compensation. This compensation can be structured whichever way fits our new Pastor and can be negotiated.
