Mission Grants

PSMC offers grants to PSMC churches for the purpose of church planting and missional outreach in their communities. The guidelines for the grants are outlined in the PSMC Mission Policy.

Church Planting

PSMC may provide funding in the form of a one-time startup grant in the range of $5,000 to $10,000 contingent on availability of financial resources and demonstrated need.  Some determining factors for grant requests:

  • Are Conference funds available?
  • Does the granting request generally comply with the Conference’s “Guidelines for Church Planting?”  For example, has a mission and vision statement, a business/ministry plan and a budget been provided?  Is there a ministry support team in place?  Is there significant support from a “sister” congregation?
  • Is the location of the proposed church plant in a region of interest to the Conference?
  • Is there evidence of strong commitment to an Anabaptist / Mennonite faith perspective?
  • Is there a procedure to ensure transparency and accountability for the use of grant monies?
  • Has the grant request been affirmed by the Minister of Missions and Conference Minister?
  • Priority will be giving to church planting requests over missional outreach activities.
  • The protocol for applying for funds will be determined by the Minister of Mission. 

The application for church planting grants is being developed and will be available soon.
