Following Jesus’ way of creating loving, liberating, and life-giving relationships with God, each other, and all creation.

  • Forming disciples of all ages
  • Enhancing spiritual vitality
  • Engaging the church in its neighborhood
  • Creating new church communities in underserved areas

  • project site/programs for two consecutive years;
  • capital campaigns or debt reductions;
  • deferred maintenance (repairs or upgrades to the physical plant or facility must be tied to the specific ministry or project of the current application);
  • operational budgets (meaning the proposed budget and program is the same as the year before);
