Mission Program Grants

Dear Colleagues,

The Office of Mission Program Grants offers programs intended to provide operating funding for the establishment of new worshiping communities and for supporting presbyteries’ work in encouraging continual congregational transformation.

The processes encourage local accountability, rewards risk taking and innovative thinking and enables flexibility in the types of ministries that are considered for assistance.

The Presbytery Grant for Congregational Transformation provides grants of up to $50,000 for two years to support presbyteries in their work of continually transforming existing congregations.

The New Worshiping Communities Seed Grant provides an initial $7,500  for the first twelve months of ministry and then the potential for an additional $25,000 Investment Grant for the next eighteen months of ministry and followed by the possibility of $25,000 from the Growth Grant.

All new worshiping community leaders are eligible to apply for the Health Insurance Grant worth $1,500 per year and is twice renewable. 

We also sponsor the Sam & Helen R. Walton Award to help excellent new congregations with their capital expenses.

 Blessings,

Tim McCallister, Associate
