2017 Mission Grants

DEADLINE: October 31, 2017

Has your church ever wanted to start a new mission project for your community and didn’t have the money at the time, so it had to be put on the back burner? Well here is your opportunity to dream again.
 
Apply now for the 2017 Connectional Ministries Mission Grants. These grants are established to strengthen missions in the local churches of our annual conference as the church reaches out to their communities in efforts to fulfill the purpose of the Mississippi Annual Conference. Grants range from $500 to $2,500 per project, with one award of up to $10,000. 
 
Friendly reminder: These grants are for mission and ministry--they are not for bricks and mortar. These grants are available to any Mississippi United Methodist church. Mission agencies/organizations must have a partner church in order to apply. Please review the grant guidelines carefully by clicking here. Only one application per church.
 
Grants are awarded to projects that form spiritual leaders, develop new places for new people, renew existing congregations or engage in ministry with the poor; therefore, living out the four Core Values of The POWER of We: love, generosity, justice and apprenticeship.
 
Applications will be accepted through October 31, 2017 and must be delivered in person or by mail to:

Office of Connectional Ministries
