New Video Available: PSP 30-Year Anniversary – “The Past”

Wespath is celebrating the 30-year anniversary of its Positive Social Purpose (PSP) Lending Program with a new video series. In this video, Wespath General Secretary and CEO Barbara Boigegrain discusses the early efforts of board members and employees to launch the PSP Lending Program in 1990. We then explore a timeline of the program’s evolution—from making short-term affordable housing loans, to adding financial partners and new investment types, to eventually expanding into global impact investments. Watch it here!

Virtual Clergy Event: Wespath Benefits and Investments "Delivered to You"

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.

Registration is now open.

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.
