New Fee Structure – Begins Jan 1, 2022

  1. Each licensed minister up through age 30 years shall send $50 per month to the District Secretary-Treasurer on at least a quarterly basis.
  2. Each licensed minister from age 31 to 69 years shall send $85 per month to the District Secretary-Treasurer on at least a quarterly basis.
  3. Each licensed minister from age 70 years and up shall send $50 per month to the District Secretary-Treasurer on at least a quarterly basis.
  4. The District Secretary-Treasurer shall send a statement to each minister at the end of every quarter reporting his or her contribution for that quarter.
  5. Enforcement Clause: Ministers failing to keep their district dues current with this financial policy will be notified and given ninety (90) days to remit full, past due payment before a termination notice is issued by
    certified mail requiring a returned, signed receipt. If a minister receives a termination notice, he or she may be reinstated without meeting the District Board provided that a service fee of $50 and the delinquent dues are received before the termination date and the reinstatement meets with the District Board’s approval. All ministers who are dropped from the Indiana District United Pentecostal Church International for non-payment of district dues shall be required to pay all back dues and a $50 service fee to the district before being reinstated into the Indiana District United Pentecostal Church International.
  6. Pastors with approved North American Missionary status shall be exempt from district dues and from sectional dues during such status.
  7. Ministers with honorary license status shall be exempt from district dues and from sectional dues. Honorary/Exempt status is outlined in the UPCI Ministers Manual under: Article VII, Section 7. Number 5. (a) & (b).
  8. Evangelist Clause: Evangelists desiring to participate with Article IV Section 4 must comply with the district financial policy.
  9. Hardship Clause: Any Minister having a financial difficulty that makes him or her unable to keep dues current shall notify the District Secretary-Treasurer in writing prior to being dropped for non-payment. At such time a committee, appointed by the District Superintendent and approved by the District Board, will take oversight of the matter. The minister may be granted by the committee up to a six-month, one time deferment of district dues. The committee chair will notify the District Board of any such deferment of dues. Any hardship request necessitating more flexibility than six months must be requested in writing to the District Board. The District Board shall at their discretion issue modifications and/or exemptions from the district dues policy.
