Pulpit Supply Rate
According to Synod Guidelines (updated 10/10/20), pulpit supply leaders are compensated at the rate of $200.00 for one service and $50 for each additional service. In addition, round trip mileage at the 2022 rate of 58.5 cents per mile is suggested. The IRS announced an increase in the standard mileage rate for the final 6 months of 2022. Effective July 1, the standard mileage rate for business travel will be 62.5 cents per mile. A congregation would also provide lodging and expenses if an overnight is required. Pastors serving in interim positions will no longer be shown on the pulpit supply list. Anyone wishing to be added to the list is encouraged to have a conversation with Bishop James Gonia.
If you are not on the pulpit supply list, but would like to be considered for pulpit supply ministry in the Rocky Mountain Synod, please complete and submit this form. Synod Council authorizes those who appear on the list to supply on behalf of the Rocky Mountain Synod.
