    The church and the people who attend.  Or at least, they SHOULD!

    pastors never get a set rate. The bills come first. Expenses are tantamount. Then whatever is left over is given to the pastor. Sometimes a pastor will not take a job because the pay is too low, this is wrong. Sometimes the church will beg for more money because the bills aren't getting paid. This is wrong. Sometimes pastors have to take pay cuts to pay the bills. The work of god is a work of and by faith. God supports the church by putting into the hearts of people what to give. Elders, deacons too they should never be told what pay they will receive. It is a work of faith and love. God supplies their needs as the congregation too.
    Pastors have to tithe off the amount they get and the church has to put away a certain amount as a tithe. No one escapes tithing it exercises both faith in god and love.

      Neither pastors nor any Christian has to tithe. The command to tithe was done away with the Law. The amount and frequency of giving is up to the individual believer. The New Testament confirms this. It's another man-made tradition.

    Depending on the size of the church some Pastor don't get paid and have full times job.  Larger or Denomination churches have a board of direction of treasury department who will decide these matters.
