New Worship Service

Church Development grants from the Indiana Conference can provide Indiana United Methodist churches partial funding for certain outreach efforts, such as starting new worship services. These efforts all involve the development of a strong new faith community designed to reach unreached population groups.

The maximum amount for this grant is $5,000. Each church can receive only one of these grants for each project. Please note that in order to apply for this grant, applicant churches must first have their key leaders trained by Church Development staff in launching a new worship service. If you have questions about whether your project qualifies for this grant, or to schedule the New Worship Workshop training, please contact a Church Development staff person.
