I invite clergy in the Synod of Alberta and the Northwest to participate in a Clergy Stipend and Allowances Survey. The purpose of this survey is to assist me, Rev. Dewald Delport, as I work with St. Andrew’s, Lethbridge, to talk about the stipend and allowances for a future call. Often times we hear congregations provide a continuing education allowance above the $600 that GA requires. Some clergy receive a book allowance, and others have mentioned a hospitality allowance. This survey is to help the St. Andrew’s understand what other congregations offer. I understand that some of you would have no concerns sharing the information while other may feel a little more reluctant. I respect your choice for participation and the level of transparency you offer. The survey is set up to allow for a variety of comfort levels. Feel free to answer only the questions you are comfortable with. I thank you for your participation.
