We recommend that the following be adopted as resolutions by this 102nd Annual Conference:


    WHEREAS, we strongly believe it is the scriptural   responsibilities of the church to adequately meet     the needs of its pastors (Matt. 10:10; I Cor. 9:715; Gal. 6:6; Phil. 4:10-19; I Tim. 5:17-18),   therefore be it


    RESOLVED, that we encourage each church to  increase its pastor's salary at least 6.5% above    the previous year's salary, and further


    RESOLVED, that it is the consensus of this  Committee that the minimum salary adequate for a pastor serving a Bible Fellowship Church including

    benefits is $15,230.00 for the 1985-86 year.
