God in the city

Grants for African American ministry and service

What projects do you envision starting or developing if you had free seed money?

This networking opportunity through Mennonite Mission Network is designed to support the needs of your local ministry. We want to help African American churches to continue mobilizing in their communities, and to build partnership through Mennonite Mission Network's service opportunities.

Grant money is available in two ways:
1. Up to $3,000 to support your community engagement.

We encourage African American pastors, leaders, youth groups or college students to apply for funds to expand your knowledge of how communities are organizing to make a difference in their local community. Apply by March 7, 2022.

2. Scholarships for the Youth Venture service opportunities listed below. ($600 per person available. Youth groups are encouraged to apply.)

Come and learn from the stories of our brothers and sisters of how God is at work in their community and in their lives.
Please apply for both the service opportunity and for the scholarship.
