The purpose of the Mission Ministry Team is to partner with organizations to further their missions and ministries through the distribution of mission funds.
The following criteria shall be followed in the awarding of Mission grants:
- Provide seed money for emerging mission outreach.
- Fund programs that address critical needs such as hunger and homelessness.
- Fund programs geared toward self-empowerment of individuals.
- Demonstrate participation or engagement of members and/or congregations of the United Church of Christ with the grant seeking organization.
The team identifies potential grant recipients, seeks and reviews grant applications, awards grants and follows up with grantees.
Follow-up may include the review of recording documents or site visits. The team awards grants each year to our mission partners in accordance with our stated criteria.
