2016 Great Ends of the Church Fund Applications Now Available
The 2016 Great Ends of the Church Fund (GECF) application and time line (Word format with writable fields) are now available. For this funding cycle, the GECF subcommittee has streamlined the process and is eager to distribute nearly $200,000 in grants. Applications will be due by 5:00 PM on Friday, August 21, 2015.
The subcommittee will meet with candidates to discover more about their hopes for ministry. If the subcommittee feels additional information will help with the discernment process, applicants may be invited to interview during the week of October 5. Additionally, applicants may request an interview with the subcommittee as another avenue for communicating the ministry vision of the group or organization.
Please know there is no one model for a successful application. Based on the total number of applications received, the subcommittee will prayerfully and thoughtfully award funds to the most outstanding proposals.
The Great Ends of the Church Fund Subcommittee:
Elder Deakon Dressing, Rev. Dr. Johnnie Monroe, Elder Barb Prevost, Rev. Ayana Teter (Pittsburgh Presbytery Staff), Rev. Caitlin Werth, and Elder Linda Williams
