Dear Friends,

These past several months have brought dramatic change and upheaval for all of us – and it’s during times of uncertainty that our relationships with each other are more essential than ever.

Supporting you during the pandemic

Everence CEO, Ken Hochstetler

Ken Hochstetler, Everence President and Chief Executive Officer

Throughout this pandemic, Everence® has continued to serve our members and clients with remote capabilities, minimal contact options, and select onsite services. We have placed safeguards and protective measures in all of our office locations, to further protect you and our employees as we gradually reopen our doors to the public.

We also have resources and initiatives to help you with your financial and stewardship needs as you navigate the COVID-19 crisis. You can learn more about these assistance and support options at everence.com/covid-19-support.

Our investment strategy team and analysts continue to gauge the effects of the coronavirus on the financial markets and your accounts. Our Chief Investment Officer, Chad Horning, CFA®, offers regular insights into the markets and economy. And, as always, our financial consultants are available to answer any questions you may have about how the pandemic might impact your accounts.

Addressing oppression and injustice

While COVID-19 impacts all of us, it has taken a disproportionate toll on diverse, marginalized and economically disadvantaged individuals and communities. This disparity magnifies the daily systemic oppression experienced by Black, Indigenous and people of color. In addition to our lamentations and prayers, Everence is seeking to address the financial and economic inequalities that have systemically oppressed individuals, families and communities for generations.

As part of our organizational priority to support church and community relationships, Everence is:

We recognize we are on a journey and have much more to learn and do – but it is a responsibility we take seriously, so that we can fully live into our call to serve all within the body of Christ.

Walking forward, together

For 75 years, Everence has invested in enduring values like hope and sharing, love and caring. These same values continue to guide us as we navigate the days ahead. Thank you for being part of Everence, and doing your part to enrich and grow the lives and communities we share.

Sincerely,
Ken Hochstetler
President and Chief Executive Officer
