Rev. Neal Harrell & Joseph Archer are the Co-Chairs for SUMU’s New Ministry Grant Application Process. SUMU invites churches in the Sacramento region to apply for new ministry grants on a rolling basis. The next deadline for reviewing new ministry grant applications is November 1, 2016. Grant applications can be completed online at http://sumuchurches.org. As a mission extension society, SUMU does not make grants to established churches for construction, improvements, or repairs. SUMU grants are not intended to cover usual operating expenses or financial emergencies, but rather to fund new ministries that strengthen or promote your congregation in its central mission – making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
