Clergy Finances: Pointers for Pastors & Church Leaders


An earlier webinar recording with slides and handout is available through Barnabas Foundation's webinar and audio library. You can watch the video here.

Clergy and their church leaders must consider the long-term impact of financial decisions on a pastor's financial health. This webinar will provide tips on such topics as: taxes, housing, pensions, and retirement planning. This webinar has suggestions for the financial care of pastors at any age and at any stage of ministry. Canadian and U.S. pastors/church leaders are encouraged to attend. Pointers will include: housing options of church-owned parsonage or minister-owned housing, how to figure a housing allowance, three legs of retirement savings, and investment risk management and emergency savings.
