Welcome to the Ministerial Education Fund Resource kit.
The Connectional Giving team has created a digital Pew Card that can be downloaded and inserted in your outgoing newsletters and or printed (when the time is appropriate) to display in your congregation or at community events.
We also have assembled together some EVERGREEN resources you can use to help your congregation understand the importance of supporting The Ministerial Education Fund which was established by action of the 1968 General Conference.
It is nurtured and funded by United Methodists to provide vitally needed scholarships through annual conferences, essential funds for the support of our 13 United Methodist seminaries in the United States, programs that encourage men and women to respond to the call to ordained ministry, continuing-education opportunities for pastors across the connection and course-of-study education for local pastors. Every clergy person who has served in The United Methodist Church over the past 50 years has been shaped in part by the ministries and institutions supported by the Ministerial Education Fund.
