Racial-Ethnic Local Church Grants

Thank you for your interest in applying for a Racial-Ethnic Local Church Grant through the General Board of Global Ministries. Proposals will be considered for funding twice a year. Applications must be received by July 5th of 2009. The following is a summary of the priorities and criteria used to consider the application.

Global Ministries Racial-Ethnic Local Church (RELC) grants are provided to annual conferences as well as to local congregations.  RELC grants must enable annual conferences and local congregations to intentionally collaborate on a strategic plan for the development and strengthening of Racial-Ethnic Congregations. 

Though grant funds are provided to assist local congregations and annual conferences to live into the four focus areas, we will focus strategies in the specific areas involving congregational and leadership development.
