Missional Outreach Grant Application

Grant Criteria & Selection Process

Please take notice of the following as you apply for a Missional Micro-Grant from Gateway Church:

  • Relational & Event Driven: Your grant application MUST demonstrate an ongoing relational interaction with the UNCHURCHED you intend to  reach.  The question to ask is:  What will be the opportunity to continue the relationship AFTER the grant event?
  • NOTE: This is NOT benevolence.  Benevolence requests will be directed to the Church Council and/or Growth Groups.
  • Grants will be awarded based upon the following: 
    • Current availability of funds
    • Evaluation of explanation and purpose
    • Urgency (relative to date of event)
    • Follow-up plan
  • Pastoral Staff and Leadership Team participation is limited and will be determined by the individual requested (if applicable). The intention IS NOT to create a church event/outreach but for you or your group to live missionally.  Staff and leadership will be available for help on a consulting basis as needed.
  • The limit for each grant/event is $300.
  • For tax reasons, an individual’s limit for grants will be $599.00 for the year. If a group submits a request, the grant funds will be assigned to one individual of the group.
  • Full amount requested may or may not be granted. PARTIAL grants are also possible. Availability of funds and amount of requests will be major determining factors.
  • By requesting and receiving any grant funds, you agree to provide receipts following the event. Those are to be given to Justin Campbell (jcampbell@gateway4.org)
  • Any unused funds are to be returned to Church Administration.
  • Applications will be accepted starting May 27, 2018 through June 10, 2018.
  • Grants will be awarded starting May 27, 2018 through June 10, 2018, or for as long as funds are available. Funds MAY BE dispersed after June 10, 2018, but ALL grant decisions will be made by that date.
  • Grant Review Committee approval will approximately be completed every three weeks.
  • Grant Review Committee will be comprised of Pastoral Staff.
  • Point of contact for Applicants will be Pastor Justin: jcampbell@gateway4.org.
  • Applications will be accepted via Church Website.
  • Approval of grant application will be provided via email. Arrangements for disbursement of funds will be made with Church Administration. PLEASE DO NOT contact Church Office for status of grant application.
