PSWD District News:

Jesus in the Neighborhood and other Partnership Grants:

With the adoption by the denomination of the Compelling Vision at the 2021 Annual Conference, the Pacific Southwest District Congregational Vitality Task Group wants to encourage our congregations, fellowships, and projects to look for ways to bring life to the Jesus in the Neighborhood vision in your community. PSWD is still making $500 grants available to assist and encourage congregations to try something that will share Jesus in your community with relationship-based neighborhood engagement.

Congregations can apply for up to two grants per year. Applications received by the first of each month will be considered by the committee soon thereafter and checks will be mailed to the church the following week. Applications should be in and approved prior to the event.

And don't forget there are other programs like the Ministry Partnership funds and the Ministry & Improvement Fund with help in leadership development and youth needs. If you have questions, reach out to see ways the District can help provide partnering funds for your ministry ideas.
