Clergy Compensation Policy

The Diocese of Michigan requires a formal Covenant of Call (letter of agreement) for each clergy person called and compensated by a congregation in this diocese. This agreement helps to clearly define expectations of both clergy and the congregation, and can prevent misunderstanding and conflict. Each agreement must be consistent with the diocesan format, approved by the Bishop, and filed in the diocesan office.

Please contact the Canon for Congregational Life, Jim Gettel, at or (313) 833-4424, for an appropriate template for an agreement with a rector, vicar, priest-in-charge, interim priest or long-term supply priest, and for help with further developing the terms of the agreement.
