Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Beginning workers can expect to earn $30K starting out, which grows to $36K after five to 10 years. Compensation is $39,904 after 10 to 20 years. Youth Ministers' pay declines to $36K, on average, after racking up two decades of experience. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 18 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than 10, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than five. Between one and nine years of experience is the norm for people in this field—most of those surveyed fit this bill.
