Grants

The foundation of the Congregational Vitality Grant recognizes that God transforms and meets new needs with new ways of living through us. This Grant is focused on congregations that are trying to live into something that is very new to them, and seek to engage their church with a place, people, project, or ministry that they have never engaged before. Consideration will also be given to Congregational Vitality Grant applications which seek coaching or other intentional supports for Sessions engaged in visioning and discerning.

 

The Collaborative Ministry grant recognizes that God works through community especially in challenging times. This grant is intended to support congregations in mutual, partnered engagement with at least one other congregation or agency within their community. More than a basic connection between organizations, these grants are intended to support true partnerships between those working together on a common ministry for God. The connections can be between PGV congregations with either faith communities or community agencies.

 

The Peacemaking Grant is awarded to congregations, organizations, or individuals who are, in some way, working toward restorative justice and addressing oppression. Peacemaking Grant applications are accepted at any time. Applications are reviewed and awarded quarterly.
