"I celebrate the retirement planning seminars the Board offers — they are outstanding!"
— Retired plan member
In the interest of serving more, Board University has something for everyone — whether you are a plan member, retiree, spouse, or surviving spouse.
To serve better, the Board recently redesigned its seminars to provide more meaningful, and lasting, educational experiences. And to serve the Church, the Board accompanies Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) pastors and employees throughout their lives by providing seminars that focus on all aspects of wholeness — spiritual, health, financial, and vocational — especially financial.
At once inspirational and practical, Board University seminars are provided at no cost to participants in various locations around the country.
This seminar provides inquirers and candidates for ordination in the Church with information and tools essential to navigating the call process effectively. It helps seminarians who may seek calls in congregational ministry understand the importance of having benefits — and the impact such coverage can have on their future.
