2017 Mission Grants application now open - application deadline Oct. 3, 2016

8/4/2016

The 2017 North Alabama Conference Mission Grants application is now online at 
https://na-reg.brtapp.com/ServantsLikeJesusMissionGrantApplication2017.


The North Alabama Conference Mission budget provides grant funds for new mission projects and continuing projects with connections to the United Methodist Church. 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.   

The North Alabama Conference Mission Resource 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 team looks to fund new ministries, or ministries that align themselves with the conference's mission and vision statements. Continuing ministries that have received grant monies in the past may apply, but the committee wants to see that ministry not continually rely on North Alabama grant funding.

The following are the mission areas that serve as criteria for funding:

  • MISSION EDUCATION AND COMMUNICATION
    Providing mission education and training events as well as interpretation
     
  • MISSION DEVELOPMENT OF THE LOCAL CHURCH/COOPERATIVE PARISH
    Hands-on mission ministry both locally and around the world to assist the local church in launching a mission project that serve those beyond the local congregation
     
  • COMMUNITY MINISTRIES
    Community ministries in the areas of hunger, housing, and children’s ministry. Funds in this mission area are specifically designed to provide seed money for new Ministries. Applicants should include a plan for long-term funding support. Grants are available for continuation of ministry are available on a limited basis.
     
  • MISSION CONGREGATIONS (designated by North Alabama Conference)
    Direct financial support to Mission Congregations
     
  • MISSION PERSONNEL (GBGM missionaries/UMVIM Individual Volunteers)
    Direct financial support of projects or ministries of our North Alabama Conference missionaries serving locally, nationally, or internationally
Applications for 2017 grants will be received August 5 through October 3, 2016. Failure to meet the deadline will result in denial. Grants normally range from $500 to $3,000 per project.
