Financial Shalom Project
Financial Shalom seeks to alleviate some of the key financial challenges facing CRC pastors by offering support for immediate financial needs as well as long-term training for financial management.
"Shalom means universal flourishing, wholeness and delight—a rich state of affairs in which natural needs are satisfied and natural gifts fruitfully employed, a state of affairs that inspires joyful wonder as its Creator and Savior opens doors and welcomes the creatures in whom he delights. Shalom, in other words, is the way things ought to be." —Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.
The Financial Shalom Fund provides assistance to Ministers of the Word and Commissioned Pastors within the CRC who face financial challenges that impede their well-being and their ministry. The goal is to help alleviate the financial barriers so our pastors can experience a renewed sense of financial shalom that will help foster excellence in ministry.
The program aims to strengthen and sustain the financial literacy and management skills of pastoral leaders and churches by offering a variety of resources, tools, and training programs.
