Council of Bishops Offers Grants for 2020 Local Ecumenical and Interreligious Ministries
The Council of Bishops provides leadership for the ecumenical and interreligious ministries of The United Methodist Church. To that end the COB is offering three (3) grants, each in the amount of $1,000, to groups within annual conferences for special projects designed to strengthen ecumenical and/or interreligious relationships.
Preference will be given to groups within annual conferences that have been elected to lead in Christian unity and interreligious relationships. Projects selected will be ecumenical and/or interreligious in both invitation and goals.
The application deadline is September 13, 2019.
Recipients will be chosen – and half the grant award mailed – by Nov. 15, 2019. Projects must be completed between January and July 2020. The $500 remainder of the award will be mailed once the COB receives a summary report of the project.
