i’ve hardly ever met a youth worker who didn’t want to see a salary survey. and, while i’ve seen a handful of them over the years, most don’t come from even remotely close to a large enough sample pool to be helpful.
this new one, however, researched and published online by dr. charles siburt of abeliene christian university, is a tad more helpful (still extremely small number of respondants, however) in that it’s specific to the churches of christ (a denomination). their online reporting is actually very helpfully displayed, with both excel spreadsheets (so you can doctor the numbers before passing it along to your church board chair?) and pdfs, broken into 14 ministry roles and 4 other data groupings.
anyhow. not all that definitive. but still interesting reading!
