Compensation Suggestions For  Ministry Events

The following suggestions are to assist you in determining the compensation for David’s ministry.  Please remember, Reasons Ministries is both a ministry and a source of support for David and his family.  Reasonable and customary compensation, when possible, is greatly appreciated.

Travel Costs:  
Reimbursement for transportation (if driving, the current IRS reimbursement rate per mile).  Reimbursement for other travel expenses:  food, lodging, etc.  (If an overnight stay is required, the preference is for David to be in a hotel.  If a private home is necessary, David will need time, privacy and a suitable space for study and preparation.  Since David is allergic to cats, he will need a cat free home.)

Suggestions for Ministry Compensation:* 
Honorarium for speaking:  Each hour of a seminar presentation should be compensated at what you compensate currently for a Sunday Morning Sermon (minimum:  $75.00/hour).  For example, if a three hour seminar is given plus one hour of Sunday School and one Sunday Sermon then the minimum recommended compensation would be $375.00.

Love offering for speaking:  As an alternative to providing a honorarium, a love offering may be received (minimum expectation for four hours of seminar presentation and one sermon: $375.00).

Combination of honorarium and love offering:  If desired, a love offering may be received and if insufficient an honorarium may make up the difference.

    *A church will not be turned down for ministry due to a lack of funds.  Reasons Ministries simply asks each church/organization to do the best they can in providing compensation.
