Did you know 25% of Ministerial Education Funds stay in local UM Annual Conferences?

Of the total money raised in each annual conference, the annual conference retains 25% to use in its program of ministerial education as approved by the annual conference and administered through its Board of Ordained Ministry. These funds are used to assist candidates for ministry, support continuing education for pastors and clergy recruitment and provide financial aid for students in your annual conference.

ABOUT THE MINISTERIAL EDUCATION FUND (MEF)

The Ministerial Education Fund was established by action of the 1968 General Conference. It is nurtured and funded by United Methodists to provide vitally needed scholarships through annual conferences, essential funds for the support of our 13 United Methodist seminaries in the United States, programs that encourage men and women to respond to the call to ordained ministry, continuing-education opportunities for pastors across the connection and course-of-study education for local pastors. Every clergyperson who has served in The United Methodist Church over the past 50 years has been shaped in part by the ministries and institutions supported by the Ministerial Education Fund.
