For the Pastors that only draw income from a Church; were you lead by God to become a Pastor or was this your Career choice? Also, awhile back I contended that the Pastor's salary should be at a median level of the church they sheppard. I received some replies to that post essentially stating 'You need to pay for the talent of a Pastor'. I've been pondering over those replies for some time and would like to pose a question for those that share this thinking. What would be too much to have to pay and why would you want someone to lead you if they're willing to leave that church for more money?
