NOTE: This grant is only for Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)-affiliated organizations that reside within the bounds of the Synod of the Trinity.
What are the missional opportunities in our local communities that can be addressed by ecumenical partners committed to living out the love of Christ with their neighbors? How does our common call to live the Kingdom challenge us to be present together in new ways that make a difference where we live and worship? Congregations, presbyteries and Presbyterian supported interdenominational partnerships are invited to dream a local ministry initiative and can apply for a one-time grant of up to $2,000 to begin that new work.
