CBF/GA is seeking to further invest in our vision “to serve Christians and churches as they discover and fulfill their God-given mission.”
CBF/GA again 2021 is offering churches the opportunity to be creative and expand their ministries into the community through Congregational Ministry Grants. These matching grants of up to $2000 will be funded through the State Mission Offering. In 2019, the inaugural year for these grants, ten congregations from across Georgia received matching grants for a wide variety of ministry and mission initiatives. Projects have ranged from supporting foster families to the upgrading of a community garden, from referee support for a community basketball league to scholarships for students in medical coding classes. This program has been well-received by our churches, and we are pleased to continue to offer these grants.
Grant applications will be considered on a rolling basis for now, so there is no deadline for applying. While CBF/GA does not have specific projects in mind, we hope that the projects that churches propose will further support the mission and values of CBF/GA.
We have identified four specific categories into which projects should fall:
• Community Partnerships
• Interfaith Initiatives
• Local Mission Engagement
• Young Leadership Development
