Foundation News: April 2021
Saving Grace online through April:
The Foundation's virtual course Saving Grace: A Guide to Financial Well-Being has been a huge success. If you'd like to join other pastors who have received 1 CEU credit, you can buy the workbook and watch the lessons on our website through the end of the month. Please email us at for the password to enter the Saving Grace section of the website. Watch all 10 videos and get a CEU - it's that easy!

Other good news:
HELP loans open June 1

Iowa is one of the few states that offer this refinancing option to pastors with high interest rate seminary debt. We will refinance your loan(s) at 1.5% and likely save you hundreds in interest payments! Check out our website for the application.
