Financial Wellness Resources
A variety of resources to improve financial wellness are available at no cost to you as a rostered minister in the ELCA. Engaging with these resources provides rostered ministers the information needed to make well-informed financial decisions and the confidence to share perspectives. This competence and confidence can impact not only your personal financial wellness, but also that of the congregations and organizations you serve.
