Application Process Opens for Pandemic Relief Grants

Applications are now being received for grant awards to Minnesota Conference congregations and authorized ministers. Grants will be awarded in three categories:

  1. Emergency grants for congregations, which may include help with meeting operating expenses, support for community ministries, or technology support;
  2. Counseling assistance for actively serving authorized ministers; or
  3. Website development for congregations.

Full details on eligibility criteria and benefits of each type of grant are available in three separate grant applications (see downloadable applications below). Questions and completed applications can be directed to Conference Minister Shari Prestemon at

There is no application deadline but grants will be awarded on a first come, first-served basis until all allocated funds have been utilized.

These grants are made possible thanks to the generosity of donors to the Conference Minister Discretionary Fund and the Disaster Emergency Fund.
