New Ventures in Community Ministries Grants: 2023
Do you have a ministry idea that needs funding? A New Ventures in Community Ministries Grant is a great way to turn your ministry dreams into reality!
The Diocese of Missouri will be awarding grants ranging from $2,500 to $25,000 to help you do God's work in our communities. Grant applications are now available.
The mission of the Diocesan Outreach Endowment Fund through the New Ventures in Community Ministries Grants is to inspire congregations to dare great things for God by developing new ministries and visions in response to changing social needs throughout the diocese.
The New Ventures in Community Ministries Grant Committee established by the Diocesan Council, with the advice and consent of the Bishop and Diocesan Council, shall be responsible for the disposition of the income generated by the Endowment Fund.
The first round of abstracts must be submitted by July 15, 2022. Notification of acceptance to the next stage will be sent August 8.
Phase II and final submission of the Formal Application will be due September 8, with the bishop announcing the grant awards at Diocesan Convention in November of 2022.
