Lutheran Congregation grants are available to provide supplementary funding for mission and ministry activities that are over and above a congregation's normal budgetary expenses.
Grants may be requested for mission activities such as outreach programing, mission trips, servant events, community and neighborhood outreach efforts, training opportunities, etc.; Grants may also be requested for ministry enhancement such as strategic planning, technology upgrades, capital improvements, the addition of new ministry staff, etc.
If you are unsure whether your grant idea is eligible for consideration or if you would like to discuss grant opportunities for your congregation, please contact our Director of Ministry Programs, Rev. Dr. Dennis Goff, email@example.com.
