Quick Thoughts: Institutional Church

I will write more on this when I get time. For now, the misery of statistics.

  • US churches hold $28,000,000,000 in mortgage debt (source).
  • Pastors make between 60K and 80K a year (see a fancy graph). Not, that they don’t deserve it, but this guy got ripped off.
  • 80% – 85% of an average church’s budget is dedicated to buildings, staff, and administrative expenses (source).

More later
