NAE Financial Health

Our denomination has been chosen to receive grant-funded Financial Health online courses and resources. These are designed to help our pastors, leaders, and congregations in the areas of personal finances and church generosity.

This is made possible because we are a member denomination of the National Association of Evangelicals. The Lilly Endowment provided a generous grant to the NAE to help member denominations improve the financial health of their pastors and churches.

Grant funds will provide several kinds of financial assistance to pastors. We will also offer a limited number of $100 and $200 Visa eGift cards for those who complete the courses.

An online course on Personal Finances begins in September, and a course for the broader church starts in January. Please register by August 31 to take advantage of these courses.

The website has a page just for United Brethren. It tells all about the program and how to register.
