Ministries Council Grant

The CBF Ministries Council invites applications for the 2024 granting year. The theme for CBF this year is "transform," therefore we invite applications for ministries that are (or will be) working within the framework of transformation.

Successful grant applications could include new initiatives, but we also invite those who are hoping to sustain or expand current ministry initiatives. Ministry applications on the theme of transformation could include but are not limited to:

  • Transforming physical spaces
  • Transforming relationships
  • Transforming communities

We are especially interested in resources that can be developed, shared, and/or replicated across the Fellowship, and therefore successful applicants will be expected to provide feedback summaries in the future. Awards generally range from $500 to $8,750.

The application window will be opened from February 9, 2024 - March 22, 2024.
Successful applicants will be notified via email in Mid-April.
