Financial Health

Solutions for Pastors and Churches

A program designed to build Biblical financial awareness
and strong stewardship practices.

MB Foundation, in partnership with the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) and the generosity of the Lilly Endowment Inc. grant, are making available Financial Health On-Line Training grants for Mennonite Brethren churches and pastors. This initiative will help strengthen and improve the financial health of pastors and the generosity of their churches, and encourage churches to bless their pastors and church staff members year-round.

FINANCIAL HEALTH

The program contains free online courses and training to help strengthen and improve the financial health of pastors and churches. Grants from MB Foundation are offered for those who participate in this training from National Association of Evangelicals. Eligible participants are any licensed pastor serving a Mennonite Brethren church.

CURRENT GRANT PROGRAM:

1. If you received a $500 grant in 2023, you may take an additional course and receive another grant.

2. If you did not receive a $500 grant in 2023, you may take up to 2 courses and receive grants for each course.
