Pulpit Supply Rate

We recommend the following compensation for pulpit supply:

2017- 2018

One Service………………………………………$150.00 – $250.00

Each Additional Service………………………….$50.00

Plus the current IRS rate for the ROUND TRIP mileage

Note: The range of the pulpit supply recommendation has also been broadened.  This is in recognition of the reality that the local context and the cost of living vary widely across the Virginia Synod.  We encourage congregation councils to factor in the complexity of their context when determining where they fall within this recommended range.  In addition, for some congregations the pulpit supply recommendations also serve as one of the guidelines used to determine honorarium gifts for funerals and weddings. We believe that the 2017-2018 recommendation is an accurate reflection of the actual time and effort expended in pulpit supply, and that it honors the high value which we place on the ministry of Word and Sacrament in our midst.
