The Ministry Council has approved the SPRC’s recommendation of a 3% raise for the church staff. We continue to make efforts to compensate our staff in accordance with Conference requirements and regional wages. Pastor Alecia’s salary is just above the conference average for church’s our size and we are maintaining Pastor Josh’s salary slightly above the Conference minimum.
We believe that we have an above average staff in all capacities and wish we could offer more, but we also are realistic about the church budget constraints. Please remember that everyone’s stewardship is important to provide appropriate compensation for our staff.
The leadership of Alicia, Josh, Beth, along with the supportive work of Bev in the office, Lynn’s music direction, and Omar’s Latino ministry support, keep the North Liberty United Methodist Church vibrant in ministry and faith.

When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire, distributed and resting on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit Continue reading “Call to Discipleship”
