Minister’s Benevolent Fund
Only Free Will Baptist pastors, ministers and associates in North Carolina are eligible for enrollment into the NC FWB Minister’s Benevolent Fund. The purpose of this ministry is to provide needed money, as quickly as possible, to a spouse who has been widowed.
To enroll, there is $25 enrollment fee per individual. After one has enrolled and the Promotional Director has the proper contact information, you will be notify by mail when another member(s) of the Benevolent Fund have died. In the letter of notification, you will be given a date by which to submit your $25.00 contribution fee. Those who do not respond with their contribution will be removed from the program.
Once a individual has been enrolled in the program they remain a member as long as they participate with their contributions even if they move out of North Carolina. As long as a member submits their contribution when they are notified, they remain an active member. Therefore, in order to receive notification of a member’s death, it is important that you keep your address current with the Promotional Office.
