Retirement Planning for Clergy
One of the tasks of the Christian minister is to accompany others through the changing seasons and stages of their lives.
Our own life stages need no less care – but are perhaps more easily neglected. Though we trust ministry is blessed and fruitful for you and will remain your immediate focus for some years yet, the importance of preparing and managing the practical aspects of change when preparing for retirement is well recognised.
These resources are for you and for those who share the journey with you.
We pray you will find them a gift and an aid to the thinking and planning this process requires.
