Missions Opportunities

CBF/GA is seeking to further invest in our vision “to serve Christians and churches as they discover and fulfill their God-given mission” through the State Mission Offering. Congregational ministry grants will provide an opportunity for CBF/GA to serve our churches who are seeking new ways to fulfill their mission within their local community. Churches may apply for a matching grant up to $2,000 to support a new ministry or missional endeavor. Each church awarded a grant must provide funds equal to or greater than the amount awarded by CBF/GA towards the cost of the proposed project. These congregational ministry grants will be awarded to our partner congregations from money collected through our annual State Missions Offering. Priority will be given to churches that did not receive a grant in 2020.

Congregational Ministry Grant applications slowed drastically last year because of the pandemic after two very creative and successful years. Many churches may still need time to figure out their next steps in ministry and outreach. We feel it is best to delay the application window for a few months this year while we all work toward getting the pandemic under some control. Look for information about the application period later this summer.
