Put it in writing. Don't be afraid to ask for what you want. If a church feels like you're worth that, they will pay. If not, you keep looking until you come to a place that will accept your offer. I mean really, you gotta eat and you got bills to pay.

This is key IMO. It can be very beneficial to a musician if they can play their chosen instrument skillfully and have the ability to teach a choir their respective parts.
