JUBILEE MINISTRY

Applications are now accepted for the 2017 Jubilee Ministry grants to further the mission and ministry of the Episcopal Church.

Every year, the Episcopal Church provides grants to assist currently-designated Jubilee Ministries in their work. These grants are intended to help ministries in their mission to create a more just society and confront structures that promote cycles of poverty and inequality.

“Jubilee Ministries, created by an act of General Convention in 1983, encourage a ministry of joint discipleship in Christ with poor and oppressed people to meet basic human needs and to build a just society,” noted the Rev. Melanie Mullen, Episcopal Church Director of Reconciliation, Justice and Stewardship of Creation. “Now in its 34th year, Jubilee Ministries seek to fulfill Christ's mandate found in the Gospel of Matthew - to provide food for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, welcome for the stranger, clothing for the naked, healing for the sick, and companionship for the captive.”

More than 700 ministries across the Episcopal Church have achieved Jubilee status as recognized by the Executive Council.

The 2017 Jubilee Grants will be awarded to initiatives of Jubilee Centers that make a positive and measurable impact in the lives of those in need, in amounts totaling from $1,000 to $5,000. Successful applications will demonstrate sustainability, a commitment to working with and empowering God's people and a localized understanding of the Jesus Movement.

Application forms are available here

Deadline for applications is September 29 at 5 pm Eastern.

All currently-designated Jubilee Ministries are eligible. Proposals must be approved by bishop of the diocese and, if applicable, the Diocesan Jubilee Officer.

Applications will be reviewed by a committee comprised of lay and ordained Episcopalians, including Executive Council and staff representatives.

Samuel McDonald, Director of Mission and Deputy Chief Operating Officer, has announced that applications for Episcopal Church 2014 Jubilee Ministry grants are now being accepted in two categories: Program Development Grant and Program Impact Grants.

“Jubilee Centers are a vital and vibrant part of the mission of The Episcopal Church in our walk with those in need,” explained the Rev. Canon E. Mark Stevenson, Domestic Poverty Missioner. “They highlight the numerous, varied, and locally managed ways that we are committed to making a meaningful impact against the cycle of poverty that holds hostage the lives of so many.”

Application forms are available here

One Program Development Grant, up to $35,000, will be awarded to a new or existing ministry that can demonstrate a new or re-visioned strategy and methodology to make an impact both locally and beyond itself.

Ten to 20 Program Impact Grants, ranging from $750 to $1,500 each, will be awarded to initiatives of Jubilee Centers that make a positive and measurable impact in the lives of those in need.

Stevenson continued: “While Jubilee Centers with a wide variety of missions and programs dealing with poverty alleviation are encouraged to apply, priority in grant awards will be given to those ministries with a strong educational and/or early childhood development component to their work. For example, a feeding ministry that teaches nutrition skills to care-givers of children would have priority over a program that only provides meals.”

All currently designated Jubilee Centers are eligible for this year’s grants.

Deadline is Tuesday, September 30. Grant recipients will be announced in October.
