Congregational Development Ministry Offering Grants for
Positive and Inspiring Programs

The Congregation Development Ministry is one of the Program Ministries of New Harmony Presbytery and it is here to partner with your congregation. We stand ready to assist churches with their needs and requests. In recent history, many of these have been centered on emergencies, maintenance problems, salary shortfalls and other items that disrupt the mission and ministry of our congregations. In 2017, we are planning to offer assistance in other ways also. The CDM encourages you to apply for grants to do positive and inspiring programs in your church or community. These grants will typically be $2,000.00 each but we will consider any and all requests.
We do not know where you might go with this help, but we want your congregation to do something that will bring honor to our Lord and people to His service. These grants may be the encouragement you need to begin a new ministry or undertake a new mission effort. We would love to be a part of these plans.
We promise to pray for you and your church and to stand with you as you move forward in ministry. It is our sincere hope that all of us can begin to think positively about our denomination, its mission, and its future. We pray that you will know the joy of a connected and responsive presbytery.
We have applications available for you to use so that you can communicate the information that we need. These applications may be found on the presbytery's website after the first of the new year. Please contact me, Johnny Dennis, or Julie Cox with questions or for additional information.
May Our Lord Bless You,
John W. Dennis, Jr.
