Mission Grants

The CBFSC Mission Team has set up two kinds of grants that it offers to congregations and mission partners: Project Grants and Partnership Grants. Please read the following descriptions carefully to determine which grants you are eligible for.

Project Grants

These grants, normally between $500-1500, are awarded to CBFSC partner congregations to help them realize a local missions project, event, or to start a new congregational missions initiative.
