We want to bless local everyday missionaries who have great ideas to impact our community. We will be awarding missional grants to individuals and organizations who are seeking funding for their intentional and impactful ministry ideas. Our vision for missional grants is that they would equip and support everyday missionaries and foster an environment for more people to do the same. In addition to funding, we want to provide assistance to individuals and organizations through business and leadership coaching.
Our missional grant metrics are tied directly to our mission at Veritas Church, which is: Raise up mature disciples. Send out everyday missionaries. Glorify God. Our hope is that individuals are encouraged to seek out or further pursue how their unique giftings and passions from God can be used to glorify him through intentional missional activity and influence. Therefore, we have established the following three metrics that missional grant applications will be assessed by:
As a reflection of Jesus we want to care for the whole person and help meet people’s needs, but our ultimate concern is for people’s spiritual needs and their reconciliation back to their heavenly Father through Jesus Christ. Our desire is to share the gospel as we help with other needs. What are the gospel components of this opportunity?
We want to go beyond just addressing tangible needs by building relationships and helping people through those relationships. Our desire is not to see crisis be the door to relationships, but to see relationships be the door to helping in crisis. How does this opportunity seek to engage people relationally?
We are called to be stewards of God’s giftings and treasures. How does this initiative meet a strategic need at this time and place? Is this opportunity attempting to reinvent the wheel, or does something like this already exist in a significant way?
