The Southwest California Synod provides this list of available supply preachers as a service to congregations and pastors. This list is revised regularly and includes the names, contact information and preferred conferences for supply preachers. If you are a rostered leader and wish to add or remove your name from this list, or update your information, please contact Robin Lujan at email@example.com.
Compensation to visiting pastors is the responsibility of the host congregation. Per the 2021 Rostered Leaders FAIR COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS WORKBOOK, congregations should consider the following to be a guideline in compensating supply pastors:
One Service of Worship $225
Two Services of Worship (same day) $275
Preparing for and Teaching Bible Class/Adult Forum $110
In addition, mileage should be reimbursed according to the current standard IRS rate.
Example: A supply pastor serving at a Saturday evening worship service and two Sunday morning worship services should receive $225 + $275 = $500 + travel
Supply pastors should be paid on the day they provide the service.
