Securing the Future

Joining together, the Pension Boards and the National Setting of the United Church of Christ are helping our church address... Read more the financial challenges facing many of those called to serve, including the burden of educational debt.

Your gift makes it possible for our United Church of Christ Clergy to engage in a deeper understanding of personal money management. That means with your help, we are changing lives. By ensuring that our clergy are free from financial burden they are of greater influence with those they are called to serve.

Your gift also transforms into $9,000 for immediate debt reduction and $1,000 seed money for a retirement account for each clergy participant. In other words, we are setting a new standard for debt relief by addressing the immediate crisis and extending the hope of a solid future through what we hope will be a robust plan for our clergy to enjoy the rest of their lives.
