PROVIDE COUNSELING | SUPPORT PASTORS' WIVES ... GIVE NOW - 2X MATCH

WE GIVE BECAUSE
THEY GIVE

In 1973, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America formed a committee to care not only for our ministry workers now but for the future widows of pastors. Today, the Relief Fund provides financial assistance and support to PCA pastors, widows, and ministry workers in need.

Why We Serve

Pastors and ministry workers faithfully serve and care for Christ’s church. Our research shows that many of them face significant financial and emotional stress during their working years and in retirement. It’s our duty to care for those who serve our churches.
