Housing Allowance Change in July
Our church has semi-annual business meetings--one in January and one in July. In the July business meeting in 2019, it was recommended that the pastor's housing allowance be increased. The pastor told the members that the increase could not go into effect until January of 2020.
My question--Is the pastor correct? The members feel that the increase should be able to go into effect starting in August 2019 because we have two business meetings per year and therefore should not have to wait until January 2020 for the increase.
In our case, can there be a change to the housing allowance starting August 2019?
