Sabbath and Sabbatical Grants

Nurture your faith journey and growth by taking time to practice the spiritual discipline of sabbath.

Sabbath Grant: For NWC Leaders with at least 2 years of experience.  This grant of $1500 is to be used for at least one week of Sabbath Retreat.

Sabbatical Grant:  For NWC Leaders with at least 5 years of experience.  This grant of $3500 is to be used for at least four weeks of Sabbatical.

Each grant will require a Sabbath Advocate from the community as well as presbytery support.  Once approved, the recipient will meet with 1001 staff to formulate a sabbath plan that will support deep engagement in a practice to support body and spirit.  If selected, the grant will be paid to and disbursed by the supporting presbytery.

Self-Designed Cohort Retreat Grant

A grant for small groups of New Worshiping Community Leaders to attend a retreat or learning experience together.

1001 invites small groups of at least 3 participants to self-organize for a retreat to learn and rest together.  Existing 1001 cohorts may apply for this grant, or a group of leaders within the movement with a common interest or curiosity may choose to organize and apply together.

To begin the process, leaders must choose a cohort name and begin a plan for the retreat including anticipated dates before applying for the grant.  Participants will apply individually.  If awarded, each participant will receive up to $1000 which will be disbursed through the participant’s partner presbytery.

Leaders are not eligible for a Self-Designed Cohort Grant and a Sabbath/Sabbatical Grant in the same year.

Deadline to apply is November 10! Apply Here
