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 65.5 cents per mile is suggested.  On January 1, 2023, the IRS raised the standard mileage rates for the business use of a car (also vans, pickups or panel trucks) to  65.5 cents per mile. This rate also apply to electric and hybrid-electric automobiles, as well as gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles. 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.
