As a reminder Missional Engagement funds are intended for mission initiatives which engage local church members in opportunities to serve and work within the local community or beyond. This allows us to live out Matthews 25:35-40 and John 14:12.
Priority will be given to churches and organizations that seek to build relationships between local church members and the people being served, are multi-racial and multi-ethnic, and which are most closely aligned with the mission, vision, and strategies of the Appalachian District and of the Western North Carolina Conference. Examples of these are: Establishing Community Meals, Medical Clinics and Addiction Recovery Groups. Please note these funds are intended to help resource new or expanding mission opportunities
A fully submitted application must be received online at wnccumc.egrant.net/login.aspx by midnight, July 1, 2021 to be considered funding. No Exceptions.
Please note that all funds for these grants come from Appalachian District Apportionments. Paying your apportionments helps support new ministry all across our District. IMPORTANT: While filling out the grant ONLY fill in the amount that you are REQUESTING FROM THE DISTRICT. CONFERENCE Missional Engagement grant funds are NO LONGER available.
