Grants available for campus discipleship ministries

The Foundation for Evangelism is beginning a pilot grant program to impact ministry with young people on college campuses in the United States.

"Making Disciples on the College Campus" will provide grants of up to $50,000 in each of three years to innovative campus-focused ministry.

"We hope to challenge those in ministry in a university setting to push beyond traditional interpretations of campus ministry to evangelize, nurture, support and create disciples of Jesus Christ," said Foundation President Jane Boatwright Wood. "Notice we aren't just saying ministry with students, but making disciples on the college campus."

The Foundation will accept applications through 5 p.m. EDT on Aug. 1. The deadline is final.

Organizations applying for the grants must have tax-exempt status and be in the United States. Eligible to apply are Wesley Foundations, local churches, chapel/church-affiliated universities, organizations focused on United Methodist youth, ecumenical groups, United Methodist general agencies and newly formed United Methodist-affiliated entities.

Considered for funding will be pilot programs with documented successful outcomes in addressing the adaptive challenges faced in evangelism to individuals on the college campus and a strong probability of replication on a larger scale.

Existing programs, capital improvements or salary support will not be considered.
