In Pursuit of the Almighty's Dollar: A History of Money and American Protestantism

By James Hudnut-Beumler | Go to book overview

APPENDIX A
Ministerial Support in the
Methodist Episcopal Church and the
United Methodist Church,
1880–2000

The ministerial salary data in the table below was compiled from Minutes of the Annual Conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church (New York: Methodist Publishing House) and General Minutes of the Annual Conferences of the United Methodist Church (Evanston, Ill.: United Methodist Church) for the years given, with a correction post-1969 for the number of effective ministers reported by the denomination to the Office of Research, Evaluation, and Planning of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA, Yearbook of American Churches (Nashville: Abingdon). The price index and real average salary figures for each year are derived from the historical price deflation method and the data in appendix B.

“Effective ministers” is the Methodist term used to designate clergy who are actually appointed to congregations and not to other ministries, retired, or disabled. “Total cash salaries paid” aggregates all actual salaries paid by congregations to their ministers, but does not include the value of church-owned parsonages. The “Nominal/pastor” column shows the amounts, on average, that pastors in the indicated years received in the funds of the day, while the “Real average salary (1860 base)” column removes the effects of price inflation/deflation to show the value of those average salaries in constant (1860) dollars.
