Grant Discernment and Planning

Grant Discernment and Planning

By: 
The Rev. Shannon Kelly

In early March, the application process for the 2017-18 Young Adult and Campus Ministry Grants will open. Before filling out your application, we invite you to a time of discernment, reflection, and planning.

Developing a grant application is best done in a community where colleagues and supporters can discern and explore where God is calling your ministry to grow, change, or do something new. If you are a solo minister, we invite you to think about who you should gather together to help you in this process. Many turn to their board or vestry, advisors, student ministers, and/or colleagues from your school or diocese to begin praying and exploring together.

We invite you to download this Grant Discernment and Planning Guide and begin to work with your community to discover where God is calling you to do something new or grow something that has already been started.

The applications will be out the first week of March and the deadline for accepting applications is April 10, 2017 at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

If you have any questions, please contact The Rev. Shannon Kelly.
