Help Honor Retirement-Aged Servants of the Lord

1 Timothy 5:17 tells us, “The elders who are good leaders are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.” (CSB)

With a desire to serve those worthy of double honor, Mission:Dignity is seeking more retirement-aged Southern Baptist ministers, workers and their widows whose income is insufficient to meet their daily needs, and we need your help!

Recipients of Mission:Dignity funds must:

  • Be 65 years of age or older
  • Have 10 or more years of paid service with a Southern Baptist church, agency, or institution, or he or she must have been married to someone who would have met age and service requirements
  • Meet monthly income limits (income limits change annually — call Mission:Dignity office for the latest)
  • Have less than $45,000 in assets, excluding home

If someone you know who meets or comes close to meeting the qualifications above, you can help in one of three ways.
