The Clergy Benefits Academy is an annual event hosted by the United Methodist General Board of Pension and Health Benefits for active clergy and their spouses to learn about the benefits issues that affect their life and ministry.

The next Clergy Benefits Academy will be held in Lexington, Ky., Feb. 18-20, 2013, at the Hilton Lexington Downtown. Clergy attendees and especially the spouses continually share (year after year) how grateful they are for all the things they learn; the opportunity they have to sit with a GBOPHB customer service representative and have specific questions answered related to their personal circumstances; the opportunity for fellowship with other clergy; and to hear complex material presented by content experts that make it easy to understand and apply.
