A History of Geneva Benefits Group and the PCA

For fifty years, Geneva Benefits Group has administered the Ministerial Relief Fund on behalf of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).

That means our decisions are directed by Scripture and guided by our church documents, even in financial matters like church staff compensation packages. But when it comes to enrolling a church staff in a retirement plan, it can be difficult to know where to start.

Retirement Planning for Pastors

In our research, we found that 70% of PCA pastors are not confident that they have enough savings for retirement, and therefore need to plan for retirement. As many PCA pastors reach retirement age, Geneva helps the most pressing cases with financial aid through the Relief Fund.
