Description of Projects Funded: Mission Seed Funds are designed to encourage and facilitate NCC United Methodist congregations in risk-taking ministry and radical hospitality. These funds are designed to be supplemental and specific to new outreach programs that offer hands-on ministry and witness beyond the church walls. Funds may be used to support ministry throughout or beyond the geographical boundaries of the NCC, providing these programs are outreach ministries through local churches. Program outcomes should be measurable and achievable, and ministry should demonstrate a plan for future sustainability.
Amounts Awarded: Funds for a single ministry may be up to $10,000 per year, with the typical award being $5,000 or less. Funds may be provided for up to two years.
Applications Due: Please see application page.
Funding Cycle: Grants are offered annually. No funding will be extended beyond two years for the same ministry.
