2021 Fall Congregational Development Grants--Due no later than Oct. 15, 2021

GNJ will provide development grants to leaders and congregations that:

  • Encourage innovative ministry that connects with people in the community.
  • Develop lay and clergy leadership for making disciples and transforming the world.
  • Maximize vital congregations.
  • Seek to honor the humanity, cultural identity, uniqueness and sacred worth of everyone as we live out our baptismal vow.

This is a one-year grant program. Consideration for funding in subsequent years will be dependent on implementation of programs, achieving goals for the grant year, timely reporting, alignment with GNJ Journey of Hope Plan, and availability of funds. This grant process does not cover requests for capital.
