“My wife, Melinda, and I met many wonderful people along the way—pastors, members of congregations and others who joined us [for] part of the ride,” said Matthews, a member of Trinity Lutheran, Greenville, S.C.

The fund provides extra income to retired ELCA pastors, rostered lay people, lay employees and surviving spouses with the greatest financial need.
