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.
