Per Member Asking (PMA) to the national level of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church for 2021 remains at $23. PMA is the primary means of funding the EPC’s mission and vision.
Stated Clerk Jeff Jeremiah noted that PMA has been held at $23 per church member, per year, for the eleventh consecutive year.
“The amount has not changed since 2010, when it was reduced from $25 in 2009 to $23 in 2010,” Jeremiah said. “With all the economic uncertainties in our country, the National Leadership Team felt it was important to hold PMA steady. I am very grateful that our churches have been so generous in supporting the EPC.”
PMA contributions to the Office of the General Assembly are put to work through collaborative ministries, connectional support, and custodial operations.
- Collaborative Ministries serve and support local church and presbytery initiatives to achieve our mission and vision better together than alone.
- Connectional Support ensures that EPC constitutional mandates unite and align churches, sessions, presbyteries, and committees with the General Assembly.
- Custodial Operations ensures prudent stewardship, protection, and management of EPC assets, integrity, finances, information, and employees.
Contributions to PMA can be made by check or online. For more information, see www.epc.org/donate/permemberasking.
In addition to the PMA for the national level of the denomination, each of the EPC’s 14 presbyteries has its own PMA target. Churches should contact their presbytery office for information about financially supporting the work of their presbytery.
