Care of Pastors and Spouses [MV-475]

- 33% of pastors say that being in ministry is an outright hazard to their family (H.B. London, Pastors at Greater Risk)
Under the direction of the Ministerial Vocation Committee, this fund is a resource for the spiritual and emotional wellness and healing of our pastoral leaders and spouses. Gifts to this fund support existing approved programs and agencies, designing new programs and systems, and helping those with financial need to attend conferences, retreats, and specialized programs for pastoral health. Our 2013 goal is $5,000.
