Each year at Annual Conference the Commission on Equitable Compensation recommends the base compensation standards for pastors in our EPA Conference, which is then approved by vote at each session of Annual Conference. Local churches that are not able to pay the full amount of the minimum compensation to their pastor may apply for and receive supplemental funds from the annual conference. These funds are provided through the Equitable Compensation Fund, which is funded by the Annual Conference budget. Due November 9, 2020 For Calendar Year 2021 Funding.
