The Board of Pensions has approved a new Benefits Plan structure, effective January 1, 2025. This represents a significant change for churches and pastors because the existing Benefits Plan has been in place for over 35 years. 

We’re introducing the Congregational Pastors Package (CPP), which replaces the Pastors Participation benefits package and is available for any congregational pastoral leader, offering greater choice and flexibility.  The CPP provides the flexibility to offer congregational pastoral leaders the benefits they need without the congregation paying for benefits they don’t need.  Transitional Pastors Participation has been created as an option to help ease the transition from the current dues structure to the new one.

I will host two in-person meetings especially for PC(USA) pastors and leaders in Presbytery of Tropical Florida to share details about the redesigned Benefits Plan and answer questions. Details about the events and a links to RSVP are below.  I am inviting you—as a minister enrolled in the current Pastor’s Participation Plan—to register for a Zoom event to learn more.

Please send these links to at least two people in your congregation who need to know this information.  Please have your Effective Salary available.

The meetings are:

  • June 4 | 10:00 am and 2:00 pm First PC, Fort Lauderdale (PTF Office)
  • June 5 | 10:00 am and 2:00 pm First PC, Tequesta
  • June 6 | 10:00 am and 2:00 pm Zoom

Please go to the following to RSVP. If you have questions, I’m happy to assist. I hope you will join me for these meetings and I look forward to seeing you there.
