2015 Year-end Financial Update

Overall, EPA billed $18.1 million to its churches in 2015, $11.6 million for benefits and insurance, and $6.5 million for Conference and Denomination ministries. Of this amount, the EPA churches paid $16 million to the Conference, leaving the Conference $2.1 million short of the amount billed. The Connectional Ministries Fund only received $3.156 million, limiting the funds available to pay for EPA ministries and the operation of the District Offices. This represents an 84.6% collection rate, the lowest rate that I can find in EPA’s recent history. Contributions toward Retired Clergy and Health Obligations was short by $337,100 and collections toward Property and Liability Insurance and Clergy Group Insurance were each short by over $200,000.  Read more
