Synod Continues to Provide Transitional Ministry Education
with the MALT Program for 2017
Scheduled Transitional Ministry Training (formerly Interim Pastor Training) for 2017:
Mission Initiative Grants are one-time grants of 'seed' money designed to help begin new congregation based missional activities. These one-time grants are for dollar amounts up to $1,500 and grant recipients will be able to share their stories and progress six months and one year after receipt of the grant.
Trees need three essential things to grow strong:
digging the dirt around the roots, loosening of soil so nutrients can get to the roots;
water, transport of nutrients; and,
Using this metaphor, the Synod is supplying the seeds or seedlings in the form of grant funds. In the application you will have the opportunity to relay the ways that you will be supplying the three essentials while growing a strong new mission through your congregation.
The Synod meets two times in 2017 and applications received prior to each meeting will be reviewed at that meeting. If you have any questions concerning the new Mission Initiative Grants, please contact Judy Lucas email@example.com the Synod office. Please note application deadlines: March 3rd for consideration at the March 24-25 Synod meeting: and, October 2nd for consideration at the October 20-21 Synod meeting.
