Missions and New Ministry Grant Application
The Northern Waters District’s 2019 budget includes a line item of $30,000 entitled Mission & New Ministry. Every church in the district has been asked to submit their ministry shares/apportionments so that your church and the church down the road or across the district can dream about new ministry in their area. The mission team meets regularly to look over the applications and to help make those dreams come true.
