SUPPLY CLERGY REMUNERATION
Remuneration rates listed are minimums for congregations and applicable to Priests and Deacons. Bishop Jacobus has directed that if Supply Clergy wish to donate any or all of their time, they should still receive the remuneration from the congregation then make a personal gift to the congregation.
Deacons may lead Morning Prayer at these rates if supplying outside their assigned congregation. Bishop Jacobus’ has directed that Deacons are NOT to lead a Eucharistic service (Communion from the Reserved Sacrament) unless given explicit written permission from the Bishop which will be granted if circumstances warrant it.
Treasurer's Note: If your congregation provides more than $600 in remuneration during the year, you must provide the cleric a 1099-MISC for tax purposes. If this is the case, you will need to contact the cleric directly to obtain their social security number.
Payment also includes expense reimbursement which may include, but may not be limited to:
Expense reimbursement should be made directly to the cleric after documentation of mileage and receipts for other expenses from serving as supply are submitted. Reimbursement of expenses is not a taxable event and does NOT need to be reported on a 1099-MISC.
