PART 1 Salary and Housing Schedule for Rostered Ministers
Minimum base salary
When computing a rostered minister’s salary, the mutual ministry committee or congregational council begins by reviewing the minimum salary schedule as set by the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. Note that time periods spent officially On Leave from Call will not count towards calculation of years after ordination/consecration. Rostered Ministers’ Minimum Base Salary is reviewed and determined annually by the Eastern Synod Council based on the recommendation of the Professional Leadership Committee.
