The mission of Sojourners, Inc. according to their income tax filing is "to articulate the biblical call to social justice, inspiring hope and building movement to transform individuals, communities, the church and the world."
They certainly have transformed one individual--their director. Jim Wallis' compensation has skyrocketed from $25,000 per year in 2003 to $218,000 in 2013. His compensation for 35 hours per week of work is now equivalent to almost $120/hr. Now that's hope! By contrast, the average American's hourly wage is about $25/hr in October of 2014. That's about what Jim Wallis' hourly compensation was in 2003 when he worked 20+ hours a week for Sojourners.
Wallis' compensation keeps rising even though the organization's assets are falling. From a high of $5.9 million in 2007 Sojourners' assets have dropped to $2.4 million in 2013. That's a drop of about 60%.
During the same time period Wallis' compensation soared from $153,000 to $218,000. That's a rise of over 40%.
