Financial Assistance

Pastors, you might be interested in just glancing through this material. Check the headings to see if there is something that might be of use to you in your financial planning.

Thanks to the generosity of the Lilly Foundation, the Central Region of the Missionary Church offers financial counsel and relief to congregations and pastors experiencing financial difficulties and/or crisis. For some information on the Financial Fortress Initiative you can read this Financial Fortress Brochure or you can contact Stephen by email or phone (260-432-8868)

Financial Relief for Pastors

Financial relief for pastors involves a two-step process.

First, on receiving the application from the pastor a Financial Coach is assigned and they provide a thorough assessment of the pastor's financial picture, with personalized counsel regarding debt relief and budgeting with the pastor's unique needs in mind.

Second, based on the Coach's recommendation and the Grant Committee's approval, the Financial Fortress Initiative provides financial assistance, in the form of a grant, to help in this time of financial crisis.

The areas which we consider for help with a grant are

  • Relieving the burden of educational debt that pastors have incurred for their studies.
  • Costs incurred for children's education.
  • Various emergency expenses that occur (House fire, car replacement, etc.)
  • Non-covered medical costs
  • Application forms are below, please complete both if you are interested in pursuing having a grant considered for your need and return them to Stephen Lane.

    As always, feel free to contact Stephen for more information.
