Paychex has partnered with Wespath to assist with managing the nuances of payroll related to clergy, our health insurance options and the ever-changing retiree benefit laws. Additionally, churches will receive a 35% discount for signing up through Wespath.

Support Services

Does your ministry need administrative help? UMC Support’s professionals make the GCFA agency run smoothly. UMC Support offers many services – IT, Marketing, Human Resources, Copyright Consulting and Meeting Planning – often at a lower cost than secular vendors.

If you are interested in any of these services – or if you have questions about your ministry but aren’t sure what you need – email the Connectional Relations team or call 866-367-4232.
