Ministerial Compensation

The Ministerial Compensation Committee develops guidelines for ministerial and other church employee compensation. The Committee also provides compensation guidance to ministers and churches upon request. Annually, the Committee revises the guidelines and presents them to the Annual Meeting for approval.


The Vermont Conferene, UCC recommends the Pension Boards for health, vision and dental coverage as well as for retirement annuity. The Pension Boards are a member body of the United Church of Christ. Please note that UCC ministers who are enrolled in the Pension Boards health coverage may transfer that coverage from setting to setting. Churches should budget for this probability when discerning their compensation package.
