Vol. XIX, Issue 79
Wespath is releasing the first biennial report on the Central Conference Pensions (CCP) program and the pension plans around the world for which CCP provides funds. The report will provide transparency into:
CCP provides long-term retirement security for United Methodist clergy in those conferences outside of the United States. This program helps assure sustainable pension support to central conference ministers and their surviving spouses and other beneficiaries. Pension plans exist across Africa, the Philippines and Europe, covering nearly 3,300 retirees and surviving spouses.
Donations to CCP from across our Connection help assure ongoing support for overseas pastors, and their beneficiaries, who have faithfully served the Church yet historically had minimal or no financial support in retirement—unlike their U.S. clergy counterparts. Please visit our website to make donations online: https://www.wespath.org/ccp/donations/, or donations can be sent to:

Wespath is excited to be hosting another "Delivered to You" educational event. This virtual event will bring education and five dimensions of well-being to all active clergy in their workplace/home space.
The Wespath meetings and events team has changed direction from live, in-person opportunities to offering a virtual event that will provide an energizing customer experience in a new and different way. Wespath Benefits and Investments "Delivered to You" will be hosted on Monday and Tuesday, February 8-9, 2021 and will be two half days—in the afternoon. The event will provide educational information that will inspire and encourage clergy of all ages and stages in ministry.
We are excited about this virtual event and hope you will help us promote it within your conference. We are grateful for your partnership in this adventure and for your ongoing support.
The registration fee is $49.00. The fee offsets the cost of an event Care Kit that will be delivered to each attendee who is registered in advance, to help them participate fully and enjoy the event more.
Check our website for more information and to invite your clergy to register today.
Thank you for your support as Wespath continues providing education to help clergy make informed benefit decisions and caring for those who serve.
