The Bridge Fund

The Bridge Fund is a result of a grant from the Lilly Foundation “to alleviate the financial burdens carried by pastors and thereby strengthen the quality of pastoral leadership and enhance the vitality of Indiana congregations.”

While there are a variety of needs, the Bridge Fund (formerly known as NCMEF) is focused on the following:

  • Assist pastors with educational debt.
  • Assist retired pastors with the cost of their supplemental health insurance.
  • Assist pastors who face unforeseen crises or emergencies.
  • Provide professionally led education events for pastors, church boards, and congregations regarding the financial health of our pastors.
