Pastors Pension Support Fund for the United Church of Christ in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe

The Pastors Pension Support Fund for the United Church of Christ in Zimbabwe was established as a Wider Church Ministries endowment in 2002 at the request of the Global Ministries Area Executive for Africa, the President of the United Church of Christ in Zimbabwe (UCCZ), and several constituents of the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) with long-standing and strong connections with the UCCZ and its ministry.

The economic situation of retired pastors and their families of the UCCZ is quite tenuous, as there historically is not a systematic system of pensions in place for these pastors. The UCCZ is taking up its responsibility to provide these pastors and their families with support during retirement. The situation of retired pastors is compounded by the prolonged chaotic economic situation suffered by Zimbabwe as a whole.  The Pastors Pension Support Fund for the United Church of Christ in Zimbabwe Fund provides an opportunity for donors, especially constituents of the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), but not exclusively, to make contributions to a permanent fund that will provide Global Ministries partner church, the United Church of Christ in Zimbabwe, with distributions on an ongoing basis to provide pension support to its retired pastors and their families. 

Contributions may be made to the principal of this Fund at any time. Gifts for the Pastors Pension Support Fund for the United Church of Christ in Zimbabwe should be directed to:

Wider Church Ministries
700 Prospect Avenue, 7th Floor
Cleveland, OH  44115-1110
