Clergy/Non-Clergy Budget Compensation Reports

New for this year are budget compensation packages.  These newly formatted and designed reports will help you prepare budgets for clergy compensation, reimbursable business expenses, and direct invoice.   There will be supplemental videos related to the 2021 Clergy/Non-Clergy Budget Compensation Reports.  They are done in small segments so that you can quickly get to the area in which you need resourcing.  The videos are as follows:

Clergy Budget Compensation Report Videos 
  • Budget Compensation Overview
  • Format and Design
  • How Do I begin
  • Reimbursable Expenses
  • Salary Reductions

3 "L" Academy    

In the past, the Mississippi Conference Board of Pension sponsored a two-day educational session where we assisted clergy in modeling and teaching the United Methodist commitment to fully utilizing their time, talents, gifts, service, and witness.  We hope to be able to do this again in the spring of 2021.

Coming soon to these resources will be information in the form of videos explaining your clergy pension and health benefits.

Local Church Administry Training       

The financial leadership training provides counsel and guidance to strengthen the administrative and financial abilities of the local church treasurer, financial secretary, finance committee members, church business administrators and church Trustees.

While we are not able to do this training this fall, we hope to have the session in the spring of 2021.  Soon we will post videos of these session for your training resources.
