Congregational Missional Initiative Grants
We have money available for congregational experiments!  We would love for your congregation to help use it! These grants are for $500-1500 and have the following guidelines:
  • experiment must be something new – no existing programs
  • experiment must somehow engage people in the larger community beyond the congregation
  • Prefer experiment to happen outside of your church building/property
Some examples of past grants:
  • Hiring a Whitworth fellow to partner between Knox Presbyterian and Side By Side Ministries.
  • Hosting a family event in the park to follow up with VBS families that do not attend church (Reardan Presbyterian).
  • Hosting community game and craft nights in the Fairfield Community Center; hosting a thank you pizza night for volunteer Firefighters and EMTs.
