Yes. If the church does not have any control over his hours, hiring/firing, etc. he is probably considered sel-employed and the church would issue him a 1099-Misc with his wages reported in box 7.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
