Hi ! I've always been admirative about the fact most of our pastors spent so much time for us, and their wives too, helping the church. It's a full time activity, and to be honest, a hard one here. One of our pastors used to have a part-time job to afford his living. I would say our pastors condition is " modest " considering the living standards we have here. Are pastors always " paid " from what they get from the church (or from their support overseas) ? Are there some federations that " fix " the salary of the pastors, so that there is more " redistribution " between them ? (in a way, a pastor leading a 100 people church in a lost town doesn't have less merit than one leading a church where 1000 people attend no ? Both probably spend as much time, but what about their comfort and their families ?). Of course, i always considered being a pastor as a vocation more than a " job " anyone could take. It's a full time job. But i sometimes have the feeling that some " struggle ", even if they don't think so (God bless them for their humility). Yesterday, i read some pastors had an income of more than 100000 US $ a year. Is it possible ? I have the feeling that it is " much " no ? Is the fact of being " very wealthy " compatible with being a pastor (i mean wealthy in terms of income from the pastor activity) ? I'm asking because i don't know what to think about this ... God bless you all !
