60 Percent Of Pastors' Wives Say Church Salary Not Enough To Meet Needs.


Reader its interesting that the vast majority of U.S. Protestant pastors’wives say ministry don't pay enough.  For some being married to a pastor means a life filled with joy, purpose and a lot of headaches, according to a new LifeWay Research. Along with joys, many say they have few friends, think they yell at their kids too much, and worry about money. A new LifeWay Research survey, released Tuesday (Sept. 12), finds that most spouses are directly involved in the work of their churches, with 1 in 5 holding a paid position and two-thirds serving in unpaid capacities. “Spouses have an important role in the church, even if it’s not an official role,” said Scott McConnell, executive director of the Nashville-based evangelical research firm. “The variety of experiences kind of reminds us just not to tuck them into a single mold.”

  1. Its nothing wrong with a pastor and his wife having a job outside of ministry. If they don't want to work outside of the ministry then they must learn to live within their means. The church provides a shelterand food the necessities for live for their pastor all other things that consist of a growing family is left between the pastor and wife to work out themselves!!
