Organizing pastor

The Board of Directors approved a new grant to support minister well-being and presbytery efforts to establish new congregations and spread the good news. The result: More ministers who are not receiving comprehensive benefits may now be able to.

Grants will be available to presbyteries to help finance Pastor's Participation dues for organizing pastors and evangelists (church job Code 301) who work at least 20 hours a week. The one-year grants will be renewable for up to five years. Dues will be fully covered for the first three years, with two-thirds coverage in the fourth year, and one-third in the fifth.

Additional details will be available in May when the application period opens.
