This Week's LessonWeek of August 4
This week we turn our attention to Reviewing Your Pastor's Housing Allowance. Start by completing the following quiz. Then review the Executive Summary for the key points on this topic, or read the Weekly Lesson for a complete discussion of this topic.
A church board designates a housing allowance of $15,000 for its senior pastor this year. By the end of June, it is apparent that the pastor will incur housing expenses of $20,000 for the year. The pastor asks the board to increase the housing allowance for the remainder of the year.

Mid-year is a good time to review the housing allowances your church designated for staff pastors for the current year. In some cases, you will discover that the housing allowance has turned out to be lower than a pastor's actual housing expenses. In such a case, you can amend the allowance for the remainder of the year. This week's lesson addresses mid-year reviews of housing allowances.
