The Louisville Regional Baptist Association has created a COVID-19 Pastor Relief Grant Fund which will be available for all participating LRBA member churches. This fund has been established recognizing the extreme and unusual circumstances created by the current pandemic crisis. We understand that the financial strains that your church might be facing, especially in regard to providing for the needs of the pastor and pastor’s family, require prompt attention. While we recognize that various forms of relief are coming or maybe proposed, we want to help stand in the immediate gap for pastors in whatever way we can. Therefore, we are making ready-access funds available to assist with these needs. Our desire is to see little or no break in pastoral income. If your church is in need of this kind of support, please contact our Associational Mission Strategist, Todd Robertson, directly via email or through his direct office line (502) 565-5413.
While we are establishing this fund with monies already on hand, individuals or churches in a secure financial position may invest in the Pastor Relief Grant Fund for the support of pastors in sister congregations. You can give via GivApp (https://givapp.co/LRBA) or you can send a check to the LRBA office designated to the “Pastors Relief Fund.” If you have any questions regarding this fund, please do not hesitate to contact us.
