National Research Survey Invitation

September 06, 2022
National Initiative to Address Economic Challenges Facing Pastoral Leaders
Through September 16, 2022, Hartford Seminary is conducting a research project that we are invited to support.  This research focuses on the impact on congregations of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This national ecumenical research is supported by the Lilly Endowment Inc.'s National Initiative to Address Economic Challenges Facing Pastoral Leaders, of which Wespath's United Methodist Clergy Financial Well-Being Initiative is one expression.  Thank you for contributing to this research by completing the survey link below.   The survey is open until the end of August. 

For the question “To which of the following organizations is your congregation connected?” Please select “Wespath Benefits and Investments (UMC)” from the drop-down list. It is the next-to-last item in the list.

We appreciate your contribution to this national research.  If enough United Methodist responses are received, we will receive a report summarizing UMC responses, which can help inform our work in clergy financial well-being.
If you have questions or want to request a copy of the research report, please email us at

Thank you!

Blessings, Bonnie
