Standard amounts are different in different places. Where I live, it’s usually $150-$200 for a pastor at your own church, and tends to be a bit more for a pastor at a church where you’re not a member. But, in larger cities and more expensive areas, I think it can get up to $400 and more. The expected fee is usually listed somewhere in the church’s materials on weddings (my church has a little pamphlet they give out).

Can you look it up and see if his church has any guidelines? That will at least give you a sense of what he’s accustomed to. Then you can make a judgement call on what’a appropriate.

I am paying $150 for mine but that is a discount since we are also doingcore marital counseling with him. I would give between $200- 300.

Our minister recomends 250-350$ but more if travel is needed.
