HoD Committee on the State of the Church Report

Following the 78th General Convention, the House of Deputies Committee on the State of the Church convened a Church Pension Group (CPG) subcommittee to study CPG’s preparedness for the future. Over the course of 2017, the subcommittee met with CPG’s executive management team to discuss a wide range of topics and collect information. These conversations culminated in the development of a report that addresses CPG’s relationship to the Church, CPG’s pension and health benefits programs, its financial sustainability, and its investment strategy.

Observing a Century of Service

When The Church Pension Fund (CPF) began operations in 1917, Bishop William Lawrence set out to create a pension fund that would enable clergy to retire with dignity. Since then our charter has expanded to include other products and services, and to cover lay employees who are critical to the Church’s ability to fulfill its mission.

A century later, Bishop Lawrence’s intention lives on in our vision, which is to provide our clients with the highest possible level of financial security in retirement consistent with exemplary financial stewardship on our part and with the evolving needs of the Church.

Learn more about how CPF continues to serve the changing needs of the Church.
