Grants strengthen ethnic local churches

Youth from French UMC in Detroit during Youth for Christ Day.

Grants up to $10,000 are available from Discipleship Ministries to support the ethnic local church, and the deadline for applying is September 10, 2022.

Discipleship Ministries is pleased to offer the Racial Ethnic Local Church Concerns (RELCC) Grant, which provides funding to support the ethnic local church through leadership training, small groups, worship, stewardship, and spiritual formation as it engages in developing disciple-making systems inside the church walls and in the community.

Applications are due September 10, 2022. Click this link to apply.

Two grants per jurisdiction, of up to $10,000 each, are available. Programs previously funded are ineligible for additional funding. Please click this link to see eligibility criteria.

Priority will be given to new programs/ministries that move churches to places where disciples are formed, grow, and make new disciples of Jesus Christ who will transform the world. The program/ministry must involve racial ethnic church members in the planning, leadership, and decision making.

Funds are not provided for personnel, equipment, or building costs. Applicants are encouraged to consult with Discipleship Ministries staff for guidance in preparing the application.
