Office of Public Affairs

Applications are now accepted for the 2012 Roanridge Grants, awarded annually for new and creative models for leadership development in small communities across the Episcopal Church.

Dioceses, congregations and Episcopal related organizations and institutions are invited to apply for the grants which range from $5000 to $20,000.

“The Roanridge Grants assist new creative ministry approaches in rural settings,” explained the Rev. Bob Honeychurch, Episcopal Church Officer for Congregational Vitality. “The funds will seed new possibilities of ministry.”

For more information, application and instructions in English and Spanish: www.episcopalchurch.org/roanridge

Previous recipients are eligible to apply, although Honeychurch added that priority is given to new applications.

The 2012 grants will be announced on November 15.

The Roanridge Trust was established by the Cochel family, who originally gave a working farm in Missouri called Roan ridge to the Episcopal Church. The interest from the sale of the farm generates the grant funds.

For 2011, $129,700 in Roanridge Grants were awarded to seven Episcopal Church agencies actively engaged in transformative work across the church.

The Episcopal Church welcomes all who worship Jesus Christ in 109 dioceses and three regional areas in 16 nations. The Episcopal Church is a member province of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
