Passionate About Our Purpose
The Church Pension Fund was founded in 1917 to provide pension benefits to eligible clergy of The Episcopal Church. Since then, with the authorization of General Convention, our work has expanded to include three lines of business:
- Employee benefits
- Property and casualty insurance
More than 100 years later our purpose remains the same, to support clergy and lay employees of The Episcopal Church in their calling to spread the gospel.
