I’m guessing that a lot of readers of this blog are in the same age cohort as me, Gen-X. Well, for all the talk of us being slackers, it turns out that Gen-Xers are pretty much the opposite: we are earnest, hard workers, with little to show for it. A new study from Pew shows...

I've been using Clergy Financial for over a decade. I have very complicated taxes that includes multiple 1099s for clergy income, alimony and child support payments, housing allowance, and more, yet Mark and the CFR team have conquered every challenge. They even helped me through an audit.
