Grants


Investing in Congregations grants are for churches that demonstrate a potential, capacity, and commitment to reach new people, grow in love of God and neighbor, and heal a broken world. Grants are funded through Congregational Development —and awarded for new ministries, programs, or staff positions.

A committee that includes both clergy and laity reviews applications each year and decides how to divide up the $125,000 in grant money that’s available through the conference’s apportioned budget. Grants range from $100 to $2,500 for micro-grants and from $2,501 to $20,000 for major grants.
