How much of your church budget should go towards staffing?

Did you know that churches in the United States spend an average of 50% of their annual budget on church staffing?

That’s what our friends at The Unstuck Group discovered in a recent study on church trends.

Maybe that’s a healthy percentage for your church, perhaps not, but no matter what season your church finds itself in - growth, plateauing, or decline - your leadership team is having conversations about how much to pay staff.

Since this such a felt-need for all church leaders, we wanted to help you answer the question, “How much of our budget should go towards staffing?”

On February 15th at 2:00pm EST, our President and CEO, Joseph Sangl, will be hosting a live webinar with Tony Morgan of The Unstuck Group to discuss the ever-present issue of budgeting for church staff.

During this time, Joe and Tony will be discussing:

  • How much of a church’s budget should go towards staffing?

  • What is a healthy ratio and why?

  • Why do some churches get out of balance regarding the staff budget ratio and how does this impact the ministry?

  • What are the hard choices leaders must make to get a healthier staff budget ratio?

  • How do you know which staff positions should be replaced by volunteers?

These are just a few of the questions that will drive our conversation with Tony. If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, you need to join in on the conversation.

We’ll spend the first 30 minutes answering the above questions and then we’ll be dedicating the last 15 minutes to answering your questions regarding this topic.
