Church Consultants

Church Consultants are part of the Board’s Church Relations team. They are geographically assigned, putting the Board close to the concerns of churches and other employers, mid councils, and plan members. Church Consultants serve as a resource to employers and mid councils. They work with employers to discern their benefits needs and help them to be the best employers they can be. For more information about the Church Relations team, visit the Church Relations section.

  • educate congregations and employers as well as members on available benefits and the value of those benefits;
