Soon after retiring in 2020, I began working with the Missouri United Methodist Foundation, serving the Clergy and Church Financial Ministry, or C2FM. I'm very grateful for the support and enthusiasm the conference has for C2FM and our mission to serve pastors in Missouri. C2FM services include Clergy Well-Being Grants for a variety of purposes, such as renewal leave, reducing household debt, relieving financial stress due to medical or household emergencies. C2FM also connects pastors to coaching focused on the pastor's financial goals as well as access to Your Money Line, a financial problem solving resource that specializes in guiding eligible borrowers through the Public Service Loan Forgiveness process. C2FM also offers educational programs on clergy finances, including pilot courses and cohorts based on Saving Grace, the new financial literacy curriculum written by United Methodists for United Methodists. I'm thoroughly enjoying this is tremendously rewarding work in my "retirement"!

If you'd like to know more about C2FM, check out our webpage at, or send me an email at

Peace and every good,
Mark Struckhoff
