The Culture of Call grant is designed to provide churches, campus ministries, and United Methodist organizations in the Mountain Sky Conference with resources to fuel their imaginations in creating opportunities to cultivate a Culture of Call.
Creating a Culture of Call means that the behaviors, beliefs and attitudes of your congregation/community readily supports the members of the community to identify and explore a call by God to serve God as a lay, licensed, or ordained person. Not everyone who feels a call will work “in ministry” for a church, but as everyone seeks to live out his or her faith more deeply, we pray that everyone will consider their work in the world, and even their interactions with other people will be an opportunity to live out God’s call.
Grants will be awarded in the range of $500 - $2,000. The deadline to apply is Feb. 15, 2019 for the May 2019 grants.
For more information on the Culture of Call Grant, email Youngsook Kang, Superintendent of Leadership Development and Director of Connectional Ministries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
