Christmas Joy Offering – Support our leaders: past, present and future.

Managing Educational Debt


Welcome to the front page of the Mission Agency’s student loan assistance programs! If you are serving in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and are looking for relief from your student loan debt, you are in the right place.


The Presbyterian Mission Agency is offering two webinars in January for all PC(USA) leaders. Webinars will be focused on the new changes in Public Service Loan Assistance and how these changes could benefit PC(USA) leaders. Many who may not have qualified for Public Service Loan Forgiveness previously, could have their loans forgiven much sooner than expected. Any PC(USA) leader is welcome to join either meeting. Student Loan experts from PeopleJoy will present the material and be available to answer general questions. Live simultaneous interpretation will be provided in Spanish and Korean.

 Zoom meeting ID for both meetings is 993 3006 0674. Use the tools below to save the date.
