Ministry Relations Program

Ministry Relations Officers Work with Churches and Church Leaders

The Presbyterian Foundation provides a variety of services to help pastors and sessions cultivate the funds needed to carry out their ministries. The Foundation’s regional Ministry Relations Officers are at the core of this effort.

How can they help? Drawing on their own extensive training and experience, the Ministry Relations Officers:

  • Lead workshops in stewardship, generosity, and planned giving
  • Consult with pastors, stewardship committees, endowment committees and other church teams on ways to grow participation and giving
  • Help you find the right combination of funding tools to fit your congregation’s unique shape and style.



Financial and gift planning professionals, called Ministry Relations Officers, work with pastors and church leaders to cultivate generosity and promote stewardship within their congregations. The Ministry Relations Officers are experienced fundraisers. They are also church leaders, having served as pastors, elders, and in other capacities throughout the denomination.
