Mission Seed Funds are designed to facilitate and encourage United Methodist Congregations of the NC Conference in risk-taking ministry and radical hospitality. These Mission Seed Funds are provided to resource the local church, to help the church engage in ministry that is transformative for the world and the church, to provide support in growing committed disciples, and reaching into the world in community with the poor, with children, and all who are the least, the last, and the lost. Seed Funds are not intended to be ancillary funding for local church budget. Seed Funds are specific to new ministry development, encouraging ministry with a specific focus of outreach to people who are not yet part of the existing congregation through ministries of service, evangelism, and presence. As such, Mission Seed Funds are for more than the normal in-house activities.
