Application Deadline: October 2, 2020
The North Alabama Conference Mission budget provides grant funds for new mission projects and continuing projects with connections to the United Methodist Church. The grant is available every other year. New and emerging ministries as well as existing ministries specifically engaged in mission managed by mission agencies, local United Methodist Churches, Cooperative Parishes, Advance Specials and other affiliated mission programs are invited to apply for funding. Continuing ministries that have received grant monies in the past may apply, but the committee wants to see that ministries not continually rely on North Alabama grant funding.
The North Alabama Conference Mission team seeks to support those programs that are partnering with United Methodist Churches to make disciples for Jesus Christ across the conference and around the world. The following are the mission areas that serve as criteria for funding:
Applications will be available online at www.umcna.org. The deadline for the application to be in the office will be October 2. If this date falls on a weekend or holiday, the next business date will be the deadline. All the required documentation should be in the office by the deadline. It is up to the ministry/organization to make sure that paperwork is submitted on time not our office. Failure to meet the deadline will result in denial. The Servants Like Jesus Mission Grant will be offered every other year.
Grants range from $500 to $2,500 per project/ministry. Approved grants will be sent in two installments determined by the total amount. A Grant Recipient Report will be sent with your second installment and should be completed and return by the date indicated on the Report. FUNDING CANNOT BE USED FOR SALARIES, STIPENDS, OR SHORT-TERM MISSION TRIP TRAVEL.
If you received a grant in the past, but failed to return the grant recipient report, you are not eligible for a grant for the applicable following year.
If you have any questions about the application form or award process, please email Rev. Dr. Adlene Kufarimai, Director of Missions and Advocacy at email@example.com
Completed Application forms must be submitted no later than October 2 of the calendar year.
