The Emerging Needs Specialized Ministries Grant provides financial assistance for start-up fees to develop new outreach ministries of congregations. The financial assistance is to subsidize financial needs beyond the local church's capability to start a new ministry. The ministry must address the specific and well-defined needs of people living within the geographic area of the local congregation. This is a one-time grant not to exceed $3,000.
Deadline: There are currently no specific deadlines assigned for the application submission. As applications are received, they are reviewed and discussed by the IGRC Specialized Ministries Committee as needed.
