Ministerial Emergency Fund

Ministerial Emergency Fund

The CCLNetwork has partnered with the Pension Fund of the Christian Church & Kairos to create funds that help address unexpected financial crisis of ministers. The CCLNetwork has discovered that 74% of ministers in the Christian Churches and Churches of Christ have debt. 54% of Christian Churches offer no healthcare or retirement. As a result a high attrition rate for ministers in the Christian Churches is due to financial strain, stress and emergencies.

Each October (Pastor’s Appreciation Month) congregations have the opportunity to contribute to the Ministerial Emergency Fund (MEF). The process for evaluating financial requests is confidential, prompt, and managed by a respected team of leaders
