Mission & Ministry Grants
The Greater Southwest District has grant money available for local churches who are looking for ways to help underwrite the cost of new and ongoing mission and ministry projects. Our ENGAGE Priorities and Projects Grants are awarded to churches who are connecting with the people in their community to make an impactful difference in their lives. Your church could receive support to begin doing you’ve been dreaming of and assistance to help you do what you’re already doing even better.
Grants are reviewed as they are received. Each grant will be approved based on merit and details provided in the application package. Because we want to help as many churches as possible, please submit one application per congregation annually.

Preferences are given for first-time participants, but anyone may apply. The trip must be sponsored by a church or organization affiliated with The United Methodist Church and going to a project hosted by a church or organization affiliated with The United Methodist Church.
