Salaries of senior denominational executives were briefly discussed when a delegate questioned the pay range offered.
The top six pay levels exceed $100,000 in compensation per year at their maximum points.
“There are a lot of people in the CRC who cannot imagine making $100,000-per-year salaries,” said Rev. David Kromminga, Classis Grand Rapids East.
John Bolt, the denomination’s director of finance, defended the grid as adopted by synod. “While these numbers may look large to some, in the marketplace they are quite small,” he told delegates. “They represent a fair but humble position for our pay levels.”
