Requesting MRA Support
The mission of Pension Fund of the Christian Church is For the Support of Ministry. Our vision is every Stone-Campbell pastor and lay employee will enjoy a strong, smart, and secure retirement. To this end, Pension Fund administers the Ministerial Relief and Assistance program on behalf of the church, partnering with Regional Ministers, as well as General and Racial/Ethnic Ministries, to meet the evolving needs of new and active clergy and their families, seeking to sustain them in ministry.
Regions are encouraged to demonstrate care and concern for ministers in their Regions by providing assistance when an immediate financial need arises. When the need is greater than Regional resources can bear, then it is appropriate for Regions to partner with Pension Fund for Ministerial Relief and Assistance.
In order to responsibly administer the program, applications are required from the intended recipient for most Ministerial Relief programs. Please choose from the applications below.
Should you have any questions regarding Ministerial Relief and Assistance, please reach out to our Church Relations Director, Dee Long or by contacting Pension Fund at: 866.495.7322 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
