For many of our full time pastors, we provide benefits.  As a 2 year old church plant, this can be tough, but we think we’ve found a way to keep the paperwork and headaches to a minimum.  When we give an employee benefits, we give them a set dollar amount.  We did a little homework and chose an amount that would provide for a normal insurance policy for a family, with a little extra to be used as they choose.  They choose their insurance plan from our provider – they can choose one with a lower deductible or one with better benefits.  If they have money left, they can add dental or eye care.  Or they can choose to contribute some of it to a retirement account.

This puts the employee in charge of their benefits and allows them to make choices based on their family situation.  The dollar amount will change annually based on inflation and the cost of insurance.
