As one of the six agencies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Board of Pensions reflects the values and connectional nature of the Church. Through the benefits we offer and the relationships we nurture, we continually work toward making new connections — and making our existing connections stronger. Acting together, as a spiritual community, to support those who serve the Church strengthens us and models God's justice.
Could you use a bit of guidance on benefits or employment practices, or how best to communicate with us, the Board of Pensions? The Serve Better: Sustainable Practices webinar, held August 2022, helped guide churches on topics such as care navigation; considerations in making decisions on benefits; importance of employment practices and personnel policies; and tools and solutions available to employers.
As the Board of Pensions works to contribute to the growth and vitality of the ever-evolving and reforming Church, we look forward to engaging with attendees at the first hybrid General Assembly meeting this summer.
Sessions, session committees, and other church leaders making benefits decisions may call on their Board of Pensions Church Consultant for guidance about options. These consultants offer personalized assistance to churches, as well as mid councils, across the country.
