As churches grow, staffing and compensation changes. How can your church anticipate and adapt?

In this Church Growth series, ChurchSalary draws on data from thousands of churches and employees to explore how several fundamental metrics impact church compensation. We hope that this research will help your church to better understand not only how to grow but also precisely which changes will positively (or negatively) impact staffing and compensation at your church.
