The United Methodist Board of Pension and Health Benefits announced Wednesday that the Central Conference Pension Initiative reached its $25 million challenge goal with a $217,000 “tithe” contribution from the Board of Discipleship board of directors, making it possible to retire the fundraising initiative once all pledged contributions are received.
After the contribution confirmation, Karen Greenwaldt , top executive of the discipleship board, said, “What an honor it is to contribute funds to the CCPI. Providing for retired pastors and spouses across the Central Conferences is the right thing to do and GBOD is blessed to be able to contribute to this important fund.”
