Suggested Compensation for Dr. Kelly

What follows is an explanation of the possible ministry opportunities available for churches by Barnabas Missions through Dr. Kelly’s ministry. These are typical expectations based on the type of ministry desired. Of course, each individual ministry need will be prayerfully considered based on the size of the church, its budget, and the missional circumstances for each. God is in charge not budgetary considerations! Generally, Dr. Kelly receives $50 an hour for statistical/strategic consulting billed on a quarter/hourly basis.  

Free Will Offerings

The following costs are for provided for budgetary planning purposes. Research shows that over the last century most churches rarely allocate more than 5% of their budget toward the primary purpose of the church – reaching the lost in their communities – and that usually includes Sunday School discipleship material!  If a church does not have the budget on hand Dr. Kelly will work with you to plan for his ministry and may come on a free-will offering basis only as well.  People will honor a ministry that brings real value to their spiritual walk with the Lord!
