Guidelines and Application Form
Where is the Spirit bubbling up in your midst? The Missional Church Committee of Central District Conference wants to encourage and resource its congregations to follow God’s Spirit and be missional people in God’s world.
Since a key purpose of conference is to facilitate our work together in mission, the Missional Church Committee is excited to announce new Reign of God Grants designed to encourage missional activity among congregations. This Missional Church Committee program will match (1-1) money raised at the grassroots level to give the extra financial boost necessary for new, cooperative missional initiatives between two or more congregations. A missional initiative is any activity capturing and honoring God’s continuing creative energy in establishing God’s reign in the world.
Grant proposals maybe submitted at any time during the fiscal year. Proposals should be no more than three pages in length and may be submitted online or by postal mail. Individual grants ranging from $500 to $2,500 will be given. Our goal is to distribute $5,000 annually.
Grants must be used for:
- missional initiatives based in the Central District region of the United States by Central District Conference congregations,
- missional initiatives related to worship, nurture, evangelism, education, peace and justice, and creation care,
- new initiatives, or significantly new additions to current programs. Operation funds for existing programs will not qualify.
