Your Dollars at Work
Money given to a United Methodist Church not only supports the ministry of that local church, it also enables ministry around the world. The Rio Texas Annual Conference has five different categories for apportioned funds given through the local church. Click on the link below to learn about those categories and how your giving is put to work.
PENSIONS AND BENEFITS
Some of the most valuable assets of the Rio Texas Conference are the women and men who give their lives to serve our churches. We invest our time, money and effort to train and prepare our clergy. We also invest in their continued health and eventual retirement.
This fund subsidizes current health benefits for pastors. The pension apportionment pays 50% of the cost of health coverage for each full-time pastor appointed to one of our churches, while the remainder of the cost is paid for by the church.
