Supporting Our Church Servants
Helping pastors, widows, and church employees in times of need.
Providing PCA church employees and their families with financial, spiritual, and emotional help since 1973.
How We Serve
Pastors and their families often find themselves in seasons of hardship in addition to the emotional and financial constraints of pastoral work. We partner with pastors and churches to support ministry employees and their families in need.
“Words can never express our appreciation and gratitude for all you have done for us. We would have literally been on the streets if it wasn’t for the support you have given to us. God bless you a hundredfold.”

Growing Needs Among the PCA
Every month the wife of a PCA pastor becomes a widow.
The number of PCA pastors retiring without sufficient savings will double in the next 5 years.
80% of pastors’ wives would access Christian counseling if offered.
This ministry is 100% funded through the generosity of individuals and churches.
God’s faithfulness to care for those who serve the church is evidenced as we look back on the numbers from 2020.
It has been almost thirty-four years since Tom Graham died, but Tom’s widow Anna Graham still loves the church and marvels at how God cared for her through the church.
We recently spoke with Al who agreed to share how God has been with him in the midst of trouble.
“It was an answer to prayer, and I praise the Lord for his generosity to me through so many people that had given sacrificially.”
