Trying to help a friend determine fair pay for Church IT in his area

I have a friend that has been charged with staffing IT at a church with about 120 staff in the South Eastern part of the US. He is stuck on what is appropriate to offer as a salary range for this position. I seem to remember there being a survey we take occasionally at the Church IT Network national events to provide these type of statistics, but I can’t remember who put it on.

If anyone could point me in the direction of the findings of this survey, that would be super helpful.

I have a copy of the 2014 Survey, let me know your email and I’ll send it to you.

Could you email me a copy also?

Anyone find information/resources on this?

The 2014 survey doesn’t have average salary per position. There is a list of positions from respondents, with about 65% being an IT Manager or IT Director. Below is part of the base salary averages:
Salary,responses,percentage of respondents
$40,000 - $44,999,8,14.5%
$45,000 - $49,999,8,14.5%
$50,000 - $54,999,11,20.0%
$55,000 - $59,999,7,12.7%
$60,000 - $64,999,7,12.7%
$65,000 - $69,999,2,3.6%
$70,000 - $74,999,4,7.3%

Average salary was $53,700 with 77 responses does that help? I can email it also if needed

I don’t know if he still does but my XP once signed up for a membership with which has extremely comprehensive salary survey of hundreds of churches across a wide range of positions.

Job Code: MC435 in the Ministry Pay system is for “Information Technology Specialist/Director” which is probably close to what your friend is looking for.
