The Pentecostal Churches of the Apostolic Faith (PCAFI) is committed to advancing God’s Kingdom for maximum impact. The purpose of the PCAFI Ministerial Excellence Center (MEC) is to support the wholistic flourishing of our pastors to equip them for personal and pastoral excellence as they advance the Kingdom. Through our planning research, we learned that pandemic-era pastoral ministry – especially bi-vocational pastoral ministry – is causing significant threats to the financial, physical, mental, and relational health of pastors and their families. The PCAFI will offer direct relief to pastors and congregations with the goal of enriching the financial wellbeing of pastors and their families through the following initiatives:
Pastoral Jubilee Grants will provide direct and immediate relief to pastors and their families when educational, consumer, or medical debt imposes significant hardship that undermines the pastor’s flourishing and pastoral excellence
Pastoral Legacy Grants will provide a modest, need-based monthly stipend for pastors that are transitioning into full-time pastoring.
