Tithing/Loans/Debt Reduction/Job/Finances

These are eye and heart-catching words these days even in ministry. The Indiana Conference of The United Methodist Church has launched a new program for pastors dealing with financial management. "Rejuvenate" is the title of this program which is funded by a three-year grant from the Lilly Foundation. "Rejuvenate" is unique to the Indiana Conference. Pastor Michelle Cobb, a former district superintendent, heads the program that involves a day and a half experience with Rev. David Bell, the Vice President of Stewardship with the United Methodist Foundation of Michigan.

Pastors, spouses and lay persons are invited to participate in the workshop which offers financial planning/consulting for pastors and their families. Other topics discussed include education debt reduction, retirement fund incentives, and funding for emergencies.

If you are interested in additional information, contact Michelle Cobb, project director, mcobb@inumc.org - 317/924/1321.
