The Ministries Council serves as an elected advisory council to the CBF Governing Board. In this role, the Ministries Council collaborates with individuals from throughout CBF to identify, develop and deploy the assets of the Fellowship and to empower shared ministry networks.
Ministries Council offers grants for projects that support the efforts of your church in building bridges within your church or community. Learn more about and apply for these grants here.
The Ministries Council also offers grants to make travel to CBF events easier for you and your congregation! Learn more about the Travel Assistance Fund for Events (TAFFE) and apply for a grant to travel to the 2022 General Assembly here!
