transforming Together

Partnerships and grants drive our missions efforts

CBFSC achieves its mission commitments through:

  1. Innovative long-term partnership commitments
  2. Collaborative annual mission grants
  3. Equipping the local church project grant

The Beverly Greer Offering for State Missions helps CBFSC partner with ministries across our state. Our goal for 2020 is $60,000. The offering supports our covenant mission partners and grants offered to ministries and churches through the year.

Posters, bulletin inserts, and envelopes are available for use in your churches or organizations. Please contact Debbie Haag in our office if you would like to order any of these resources.

Long-term partnerships

CBF of South Carolina has ongoing long-term partnerships with four organizations (we call them Covenant Partners)  in our state. Each receives funding to help them carry out their missions in their communities. Organizations that receive these grants are selected by CBFSC leadership.

Annual grants

The annual grants, up to $3,000, are designed to help CBFSC connect with mission agencies around the state. These grants are intended to help further enhance the ministries of these agencies whose mission practice is in line with the mission commitments of CBFSC to cultivate community, bear witness to Jesus Christ, and seek transformational development. Grants are renewable for up to three consecutive years. To apply you must use this online form.

Short-term missions are a major component of many churches’ ministry. For that reason, CBFSC is happy to help congregations and individuals connect with partners in short term mission. If you would like assistance in planning your trip, training your short-term team, or connecting with possible partners, feel free to contact our Associate Coordinator.

PilgriMission combines elements of the pilgrimage which seeks personal transformation through an encounter with the Divine with elements of mission which seeks to bless and serve others in their transformation.
