One of the Network's goal is to encourage children, youth and family ministry networks on a local, synodical and regional level. To help that happen, we've created "burst grants" to assist with networking events at these levels.
Please fill out the form below completely. We'll try and make the determinations on these grants as quickly as we can.
Thanks to your commitment to networking and connecting those who share in this ministry!
The maximum grant amount will be $300 per Networking event.
Grants should go to facilitate actual networking events or programs. Funds may not be used for staffing.
Burst grants will only be paid to organizations or institutions, not to individuals.
Strong preference is given to new networking initiatives, rather than funding programs that already exist or are funded elsewhere.
We will try and let applicants know a decision about grants as quickly as possibly. Usually within a week...possibly a bit longer in the summer.
Total grant funds are limited. When the grants for a fiscal year (July 1-June 30) are used up, we will be unable to release any further funds.
The ELCA Youth Ministry Network strengthens and empowers adult leaders of children, youth and family ministry in service to Christ.
