Serving Those Who Serve Us.

For over 150 years, the Preachers’ Aid Society and Benefit Fund has provided clergy, their spouses, and any dependent children with tangible and emotional support through counseling, consultation and fellowship. Our community members enjoy quality of life as we help them continue to inspire others whether active clergy or retired. Our quality assistance programs meet their comprehensive needs from eldercare and insurance to legal and financial. Our fellowship groups, banquets and trips offer socializing and networking for retired clergy and their spouses.
