Salary and Employment Guidelines

Congregations often struggle with determining an appropriate level of compensation for church musicians.  NEWAGO believes that its members deserve fair compensation, which includes a living wage and benefits that provide economic security and basic economic rights.  Ordinary economic rights include food, housing, health care, education, security in old age, insurance for sickness and joblessness, leisure and recreation, and the possibility of property ownership.

The American Guild of Organists no longer publishes the Salary Guide for Musicians Employed by Religious Institutions.  Instead, institutions are encouraged to have conversations with their musician employees to be sure they are providing for their basic economic rights.

Institutions are also encouraged to leverage resources published at the following website:
