How Much Did Worldwide Church of God Ministers Make?

Ambassador Report says in May, 1994, AR 55, page 5:

"A highly reliable Worldwide Church of God insider recently disclosed what Tkach pays himself and his underlings.

Magenta - Tkach's salary is $335,000 per year.

Magenta - Evangelist rank ministers get $120,000 to $130,000 per year.

Magenta - Department heads and regional directors get $80,000-$81,000.

Magenta - Field ministers with 15-25 years experience get $50,000-$55,000.

Magenta - Ministerial assistants receive about $36,000.

Magenta - And ministerial trainees $26,000.

These figures do not include numerous perks such as parsonage allowances, health and life insurance, use of company cars, travel allowances, gifts of ample second tithe to spend, etc. Our insider indicates that like HWA before him, Tkach has virtually all of his daily living expenses paid for him by the church in addition to his salary. Tkach is said to give about $80,000 back to the church in tithes and offerings each year.

Magenta - Retirees from the church are paid up to 80 percent of what they earned while in .... as long as they keep their mouths shut."

(If any of these figures are wrong, I would be happy to change them, just give me some proof. Yeah. Right. Fat chance! Ed)
