The Clergy Compensation Report is used to set the pastoral compensation for those under appointment by the Bishop to a church. This report ensures that pastors are receiving a salary consistent with the conference’s equitable salary guidelines, as well as appropriate benefits based on their conference relationship and appointment status. This form should be completed by the SPRC chair for each pastor under appointment. 

Resources are available to help you understand and complete this report. You are highly encouraged to review the Clergy Compensation Report Instructions prior to completing this report.
