The Excellence in Ministry Fund
In an effort to encourage better ministerial practices, the Ministers Council ABCUSA has developed the Excellence in Ministry Fund through a generous grant from Christian Theological Seminary. These funds will be offered to local chapters of the Ministers Council.
Goals of the Program
- Strengthening the well-being of ministers within the ABC family.
- To encourage the development of active chapters of the Ministers Council.
- Strengthening the relationship between local ABC regions, local Ministers Council chapters, and the Ministers Council of ABCUSA.
- To develop local Ministers Council chapter regions where they do not currently exist.
Beginning 2020, local chapters of the Ministers Council ABCUSA may apply for grants of up to $1,000 annually for chapter sponsored events such as retreats, workshops, or seminars. In regions without an active local MC chapter, regional executives may apply for the grant. Applications are available through the Ministers Council ABCUSA office.
Expectations of the Program
- While sponsored by local chapters, it is hoped that all events will be open to all ministers and church leaders within the local ABC region.
- Following the event a review and summary of the project, along with photos and select documents is required.
