Church Consultants

​The Board of Pensions provides a variety of resources to help support employers in selecting and administering benefits. Church Consultants, located throughout the country, offer personalized assistance to employers, as well as mid councils, in their assigned geographic areas.

Some of the ways in which our consultants provide support to employers include the following: 

  • present overviews of the Benefits Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and other Board programs
  • consult with employers about Board benefits plans and programs and help them to identify their benefits needs
  • help to expand awareness of the Assistance Program
