Grant Opportunity – Tell your Ministry Story!
You are invited to share your Ministry Story with the American Baptist Family and with the world! The entry deadline has been extended to May 1, 2015 – don’t wait until it is too late!
“We want to develop a learning community where churches share their innovation, experiences, and experiments in ministry (particularly ones which connect us to the communities outside the church itself). This stems from churches that have been involved with ‘Transformed by the Spirit,’ but also will include entities, regions and partnerships in our overall ABCUSA family that are doing innovative work and have addressed adaptive challenges,” said Scott Arnold, ABCUSA Journey Team member and Pastor of First Baptist Church of Bedford, MA.
Grants totaling $5,000 will be given to the top stories, and these will be celebrated at the Biennial Mission Summit in Kansas City in June 2015. The stories may be shared in either video or written (with photos) formats. Submissions of videos should be up to three minutes in length. Submissions of written works should be up to two pages in length, and can include up to five photos in addition to the written work.
Video submissions may be shared by YouTube/Facebook/Vimeo/other video sharing link. Written Ministry Stories should be submitted to AmericanBaptist@gmail.com. Churches and organizations are invited to submit stories by May 1, 2015.
