815 Ends Missionary Stipends, Travel Reimbursement

[The Living Church] 13 Mar 2008--Overseas missionaries serving under the sponsorship of the Anglican and Global Relations Office at the Episcopal Church Center will no longer receive stipends or reimbursement of most expenses under a new compensation package. Under the new plan, all missionaries both lay and ordained will receive the same benefits.

“As we transition into this new phase in the missionary program we have to acknowledge the increase in costs,” said the Rev. David Copley, mission personnel officer in a letter published on the Anglican and Global Relations section of The Episcopal Church website.
