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 missions managed by mission agencies, local United Methodist Churches, Cooperative Parishes, Advance Specials and other affiliated mission programs are invited to apply for 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:
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.
Applications will be available online at www.umcna.org. The deadline for the application to be in the office is October 2, 2020.
If you have any questions about the application form or award process, please email Director of Missions and Advocacy Rev. Dr. Adlene Kufarimai at firstname.lastname@example.org.
