Providing homes for needful retired ministers of the Virginia Conference since 1932
The Retired Clergy Housing Corporation of the Virginia Conference, maintains a program to provide individual retirement homes for eligible United Methodist ministers who need it.
This program has been made possible by the gift of homes or property willed or deeded to the Corporation plus gifts of money. Other contributions come through the Covenant of Gratitude whose members contribute $1.00 (not to exceed $35.00) per year for each person ordained a Commissioned Provisional Member at the annual session of the Virginia Conference.
There are nearly 500 persons (lay and clergy) who express their thanks for each person who answers God’s call to ministry.
Those who would like to consider willing their homes, deeding their property, making a special gift of money, or becoming a member of the Covenant of Gratitude and share in this ministry for retired ministers should contact the Rev. Charles Wickham at (804) 474-8700 or [email protected] Clergy interested in determining either eligibility or availability of housing may also contact the Rev. Wickham.
The Retired Clergy Housing Corporation exists through the generous gifts of clergy and laypersons throughout the conference and does not receive any funds from the conference.
