Everence offers financial planning grants to more pastors

Faith and Finance |

We are committed to helping pastors align their financial decision-making with their purpose.

Beginning January 2018, credentialed and active pastors from any churches affiliated with Everence are eligible to receive a Pastoral Financial Plan Grant toward the cost of a first-year Everence comprehensive financial plan. Many of those affiliated churches can be found online at everence.com/who-we-serve.

This new grant is in addition to the Everence Pastoral Financial Assistance Program, a financial planning subsidy initiative for Mennonite Church USA and Conservative Mennonite Conference pastors that was funded, in part, by a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc.

“Pastors face unique and often challenging financial circumstances, which can put stress on their personal and ministerial health and wholeness” said Ken Hochstetler, Everence President and CEO. “That’s why we believe in the importance of helping pastors address their financial needs and goals. When our pastors are healthy, our congregations also benefit.”

With Everence comprehensive financial planning, qualified professionals can help pastors and other individuals develop plans that address their needs and goals, and help them stay on course. Clients also get access to online tools that help them organize their cash flow and closely track their savings and investments.

“We are committed to helping pastors align their financial decision-making with their purpose,” continued Hochstetler, “to help increase their sense of confidence as it relates to finances and empower them to engage in these conversations with their congregations.”
