The Diocesan Council is excited to offer two ambitious new programs to the benefit of congregations and ministries throughout our diocese.
Mission and Ministry Grants will serve two main purposes: 1. Mission, Ministry, and Outreach Programs; and 2. Incentivizing Care of Creation Projects throughout Western Louisiana. The grants are designed to increase capacity for existing ministry, foster development of new ministries, address areas of unmet need, and support ministries that serve the communities in which they sit, particularly in areas that focus on environmental stewardship and care for creation.
Capital Improvement & Deferred Maintenance Loans will enable congregations and ministries to realize capital improvement needs and provide for good stewardship of our physical plants through addressing a variety of deferred maintenance issues, bearing no interest across the term of the loans.
Once completed, applications will be considered by the Finance Committee on behalf of the Diocesan Council. When applying, please ensure that all requested information is included before submitting your application to avoid unnecessary delays and that one individual point of contact is listed per application. Specific guidelines unique to each program are included in the application process.
If you have any questions about this program, please contact Will Harp, Diocesan Treasurer.
