Many of you may have heard that some members of The Riverside Church in Harlem are upset that their new pastor, the Rev. Brad Braxton, is being paid more than $600,000 in annual compensation.
Without a doubt this brother is highly credentialed, but is $600,000 too much?
FELLOW KINETICS FAITH & JUSTICE MEMEBER
AND WELL RESPECTED THEOLOGIAN, DR. OBERY HENDRICKS, HAS INFORMED ME THAT MOST OF THE NEWS ABOUT DR. BRAXTON IS FALSE AND THE REALITY IS THAT A SMALL GROUP WANTS TO BREAK BRAD BRAXTON BECAUSE THEY WANT TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OF THE CHURCH AS HE ENDEAVORS TO BE A REAL PASTOR.
SO THIS QUESTION IS NOT INTENDED TO ATTACK DR. BRAXTON, BUT ABOUT CLERGY COMPENSATION IN GENERAL. HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH?
