The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Ministries Council invites you to submit a proposal for funding a project to support the efforts of your church in building bridges within your church and your community. The Ministries Grant Team will consider applications that propose ministries involving one or more of the following criteria:

1) Building or rebuilding community
2) Fostering reconciliation or justice
3) Signifying the diverse and inclusive good news of Jesus.

Tell us what you are doing, why these funds would help, and help expand our knowledge of what is taking place across the Fellowship. We are especially interested in resources that can be developed, shared, and replicated across the Fellowship. In the past, awards have ranged from $500 to $8,750.

The application window will be opened from January 16th through April 10th, 2023.
