Megachurch Methods: Mars Hill Church Staff and Compensation Matrix

In the Leadership Journal article by Ben Tertin, former Mars Hill Church pastors Bill Clem and Tim Gaydos described the metrics by which the executive elders of Mars Hill Church decided how much staff to allow at each location. As it turns out, Mars Hill leaders used attendance and financial metrics to guide that decision. I have obtained a matrix which outlines the criteria for adding staff to the Mars Hill franchise locations. While I am not sure how rigorously this matrix was enforced, it is interesting conceptually and fits the description given by Clem and Gaydos.
