Financial Shalom is a CRCNA program designed to improve the financial well-being of all the CRCNA’s pastors. The program provides grants to help pastors meet immediate needs and training, tools, and resources to strengthen the financial education of pastors and churches.
If money is a stressor at this point in the pandemic, you aren’t alone. Here are some fresh opportunities and resources towards your financial well-being:
Webinar on Financial Uncertainty: On October 20th at 4PM EST, Financial Shalom will host a webinar on Flattening the Curve: Freeing Yourself of Financial Uncertainty. Presented by LSS Financial Counseling, this will be a free webinar specifically for CRCNA pastors. Q&A will follow the hour-long presentation. Please register if you plan to attend (here).
Free Financial Counseling: If you are an ordained CRCNA pastor or seminarian, you can receive up to six free(!), confidential sessions with LSS Financial Counseling. With special expertise in empowering faith leaders, LSS can help you clarify your financial situation and determine your best next steps. It’s a seriously good benefit (here).
Grants for CRCNA Pastors: The deadline to apply for our student loan relief and critical financial need grants is October 15th. CRCNA pastors can learn more and apply for these grants on the Financial Shalom website (here).
Reimagining Church Budgets to Reflect Kingdom Values: This recorded webinar from World Renew features expert discussion on how budgets can attest to God’s work among God’s people (here).
COVID-19 Church Engagement Fund: Does your church need help meeting budget due to pandemic-related losses? Or perhaps you have more than enough to share? Consider if you are called to apply for or contribute to the CRCNA’s relief fund (here).
That’s it for October. Please share this with your colleagues in ministry. And look out for November’s roundup, which will feature an exciting opportunity for bivocational pastors.
