Since 2016, Missouri’s United Methodist clergy have benefitted from a new resource called “C2FM,” the Clergy & Church Financial Ministry administered by the Missouri United Methodist Foundation and funded by a grant from Lilly.  Educational resources, financial coaching, and direct aid have assisted scores of vital servant-leaders across our conference.

One pastor states, “I feel as if a great cloud has been lifted, eighty percent of this work has been clearing emotional roadblocks/assumptions/fears and twenty percent has been realigning my priorities, goals and adjusting habits. I’m really glad I worked with the Foundation.”

A Missouri seminary student receiving a C2FM scholarship writes, “Thank you for helping me live into my calling with your financial support.”

Missouri Methodists, including several clergy who have benefitted from the program have given generously to support C2FM to date. 

URGENT: December 31, 2018 deadline to double your gift!

Direct aid dollars for clergy must be matched as part of the Lilly grant.  Just $140,000 is needed to make our $500,000 goal, which means $1 million will be available for Missouri pastors and churches which will make a world of difference!  We have until December 31, 2018 to raise the remaining matching funds.
