UMVIM Missional Exchange Grant Application
Missional Exchange Grants are intended to encourage UMVIM initiatives by various groups. All team leaders from the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church must receive approval by the Conference UMVIM Chairperson and the NCC UMVIM Committee.
Domestic UMVIM Teams can receive up to $500 per team while international teams (including US Territories) can receive up to $1000 per team. Special requests for additional funding are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and must be approved by the NCC UMVIM Committee and Chairperson.
In order to receive a Missional Exchange Grant from NCC UMVIM, teams must abide by the best practices of NCC UMVIM and the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission, Southeastern Jurisdiction (UMVIM, SEJ). These practices include 1) having an UMVIM-Trained Team Leader (training provided by the Conference), 2) compliance with local church and Annual Conference Safe Sanctuary policies, 3) registering with and obtaining insurance through UMVIM, SEJ, 4) serving with an UMVIM sponsored mission, and 5) reporting missional exchange results back to the NCC UMVIM Committee upon your return.
