Good news for ministers without charge
Board of Benefits Services (BOBS) has changed its policies to expand coverage for ministers between assignments.
Ministers without charge can now continue to be covered by group life insurance and long-term disability insurance for three months after an assignment ended. (Their most recent church will need to pay the premium because they cannot bill the minister directly.)
Specialized Ministers, please fill out the form below and return to the Pastoral Care Committee annually by March 1st describing your current ministry position.
