Every year Baptist Churches of SA & NT provides a minimum recommended ministers stipend package, as the basis for payment to pastors and church workers. 

Churches can adapt the recommendation to suit the particular circumstances of the pastor and the church. 

This is currently based on the Teacher’s Award and has been approved by the Executive since 2007.
