The connectional Church

As one of the six agencies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Board of Pensions reflects the values and the 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.  

​We work closely with our sibling agencies of the Church, congregations, affiliated employers, Presbyterian organizations, and others. Acting together, as a spiritual community, to support those who serve the Church strengthens us — and models God's justice.

Church Consultants

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.
