The Gospel Future Fund Leadership Grant is designed to assist churches with seed funding for a Church Apprentice or Church Planting Apprentice for 2 years ($5k each year over 2 years).
The purpose of the Leadership Grant
Recent studies into Australian church planting identified the correlation of prior church planting experience and having reasonable expectations on the health and growth of a church plant.
The Leadership Grant will provide grants to encourage church plants to train apprentices and potential church planters post-college.
Who can apply:
Men: Church Apprentices;
For men, preference will be given to those who are pursuing church planting, or doing their apprenticeships in a church plant (i.e. a church that has launched in the past 5 years).
Women: Church Apprentices and bible colleges students.
Those who can apply for the Leadership Grant will fulfil the following criteria:
– Men & Women currently working in, or enrolling for, an apprenticeship (i.e. MTS, MTN, Metro etc.) in a local church context).
– Women who are currently studying at Bible College and are involved in local church ministry.
– Anyone who has not received this funding previously.
Note: You will not be considered for funding if you do not complete the CPAT (Church Planter Assessment Tool), as explained in the application form.
The Grant will provide funding of $5,000 per annum for 2 years and also a free ticket to the Reach Australia National Conference each year.
