Ministers' Care and Crisis Fund

The Ministers' Care and Crisis Fund Exists to Support Those in Ministry During Times of Crisis and Need.

This compassionate fund exists to support ministers in times of crisis and need. Financial assistance addresses basic economic needs, health care, and restorative treatment for marriages and families. Relieving financial stress helps pastors attend to emotional and relational well-being.

Confidentiality | Pastors who self-identify with serious emotional, spiritual, or behavioral issues which may adversely impact their ministry can make a confidential call to the Department of Ordered Ministry for guidance and referrals.

Referrals | Referrals to financial counselors, psychological services for individuals, families, and children, and advocacy and support accessing state and county social services are available.

Financial Assistance | Limited financial assistance is available through the Ministers’ Care and Crisis Fund for medical, housing, and other expenses.

Prior to moving to the USA, I was a professor at the National University of Colombia and served with the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students in Colombia for 16 years. Starting in 2001, I served as InterVarsity National Staff in the USA. I have a master’s degree in Christian Ministries, and I serve in Spiritual Direction to those who want to be fully present and available to God and receive His grace over them. My joy is to see professors and college students coming to know Jesus and being transformed into people that bring the good news of righteousness and justice to others.
