How to apply

  1. Fill in the application form.
  2. Get your pastor and church board “on board”!
  3. Scan and send the application form and the board minutes where your project has been approved to Ron Whitehead by email.

The funds will be distributed on a first-apply-first-receive basis until all $50,000 is gone. All application forms must be received by December 31, 2020.

Please note that funds are not to be used to cover the salary or stipend of a person. They are to be used to furnish senior youth and young adults with economic resources so they can implement their evangelism ideas and projects.

For questions, contact Ron Whitehead: (269) 208-1344, (269) 471-8380 or email.
