Connexion Fund Application

Please complete this form if your church needs assistance in supporting the salary of your pastor during the Covid-19 pandemic.

For April - June, the Connexion Fund will grant up to:

  • $9,734 for Provisional Elders, Provisional Deacons and Associate Members
  • $9,058 for Local Pastors who have completed seminary or Course of Study

The above represents 3 months of minimum salary for clergy at that status.  Grants to local churches on a multi-point charge will be pro-rated based on the percentage of the clergy's salary that that church pays.  Grants for clergy salaries after June will be based upon the fund availability.
