Ministry with the Poor Matching Grants

The Indiana Conference Missions and Justice Ministries Team
is excited to make available Ministry with the Poor Matching Grants
for Indiana Conference churches.

Matching grants up to $2,000 are available to help create new ministries or enhance current ministries with economically disadvantaged families and individuals. Up to $60,000 in grants will be awarded in 2018.

In order to be considered for a matching grant, churches must address one or more of the following areas:

  • Identify with the poor within their communities and implement a “personal” form of ministry.
  • Develop ministry at the local level that empowers those in poverty through education and other means.
  • Emphasize the inclusion of the impoverished in ministry programming that fosters relationships.
  • See the poor as participants in the program ministry, as well as recipients of the program ministry.
