Healthy Pastors, Healthy Congregations brings a pastor and congregational leadership together to work toward financial sustainability by providing financial education and consultations to both the pastor and congregational leaders.
Healthy Pastors, Healthy Congregations participants are required to complete the following to receive grant funds.
First, complete the following three items in any order:
Next, consult with a financial professional from Ernst & Young Employee Financial Services (EY). An EY counselor will contact you directly to schedule counseling sessions. The counseling consists of two to three phone calls and requires an assessment by your EY counselor. This requirement results in a personalized financial plan. This EY financial planning benefit is offered by the Board of Pensions at no cost to participants and includes online tools and personal financial advising with a team of certified planners.
Finally, receive the grant application. The Healthy Pastors, Healthy Congregations program administrator will email you the application for grant funds. The grant may be applied to personal or student loan debt, or to the participant's Retirement Savings Plan account. If you decide to apply grant funds toward educational debt, a PeopleJoy Educational Debt Reduction Firm representative will contact you via email.
Call us at 215-587-7219 Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
