The Board of Benefits Services (BOBS) of the Reformed Church in America believes that financial burdens carried by pastors are barriers to effective ministry. If we can change this in a positive way, both pastors and congregations will flourish.
We are proud to relaunch the Ministerial Excellence Fund. Through a generous grant from the Lilly Foundation and a matching gift from BOBS, over the next year, we plan to give away over $300,000 to pastors to relieve and eliminate personal debt.
With your help we can do even more! The Lilly grant allows for additional grants to pastors of up $250,000 more if we can provide matching funds. Your donation will be doubled by the Lilly grant, and will help pastors throughout the Reformed Church in America flourish in ministry.
