I guess it's different down here out in the boonies Regina.<quoted text>
Ok, now I see it. Didn't click on the article the first time, just the little blip on the web site.
I was just looking at a 2012 SBC Compensation Study and it mentions a position of Senior Pastor: Part-Time. If you Google it, part-time preachers/pastors does come up. Although I did see where someone said the same thing you did. I'm thinking some areas might not be able to afford to pay someone full time.
That's why I had never heard of that.
My father in law was a full time pastor and he also farmed.
He still preaches if the Lord leads him to.
He didn't get paid to pastor the church.
He wouldn't have wanted pay.
They usually would take up money for his Christmas gift and buy him new tires,but that's it.
He pastored our church for many years.
He's now 79 yrs old.
Most pastors around here work a job,pastor a church and do the duties of a pastor.
I'm not a member of the SBC.
Just so you know.
I think they may pay their pastors.
