About Mission Program Grants
Jesus Christ commands his disciples to go into the world, preaching the good news and living a life that exhibits love for God, neighbor and self (Matthew 28:19-20). Mission Program Grants are made available to congregations and presbyteries that are seeking to respond to this commandment by organizing new congregations and supporting presbyteries in their work of continually transforming existing congregations.
The purpose of the Office of Mission Program Grants, in conjunction with the Mission Development Resources Committee, is to respond faithfully to the grant needs of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
The Mission Development Resources Committee is the Presbyterian Mission Agency committee which is responsible for allocating funding to projects and the development of policies and procedures for the Mission Program Grant Programs.
In partnership with congregations, presbyteries and synods, Mission Program Grants provide supplemental, short-term and start-up funding for new congregations, to presbyteries in their work of continually transforming existing congregations, and for the establishment of 1001 New Worshiping Communities.
