Guest speaker later hired as pastor

Our church had a minister speaking for a couple of months and was paid as a guest speaker.
He has now been voted in as full time pastor.
Is it advisable to issue a 1099 for the guest speaker pay and a w-2 for the pastor pay?

Yes, that is what is recommended by accountants.

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 =)
