e-learing modules

The Board of Pensions provides high-quality e-learning opportunities to members who participate in the Benefits Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), at no additional cost, through Board University. These modules provide enriched learning experiences on a variety of topics that promote wholeness in the four dimensions of well-being: spiritual, health, financial, and vocational. ​

Here are some of the topics you can explore at your convenience, in an online, self-paced environment:

  • personal financial planning, including creating a budget, paying off debt, and saving for retirement
  • terms of call, including effective salary, benefits for pastors, and clergy housing allowance

Modules are available in two formats: stand-alone, as individual lessons, and bundled, as a single learning path. This means you can pick and choose the topics you want to learn more about, or dig deeper and take every lesson in a series sequentially, in a single learning path.

The e-learning course library will expand as new courses are developed, so we encourage you to visit the library often to check out new offerings.
