The Miami Baptist Association has created a Ministry Grant Program to provide financial resources for local church outreach and evangelism ministry opportunities. The intention of this Grant Program is to provide equal access to available funds to every local church in good standing within the Miami Baptist Association. Priority will be given to startup ministries, or to support one time shorter projects or provide seed monies for new ministries.
Priority for grant eligibility will be given to Miami Baptist Association churches in good standing. In order to assist as many churches as possible this will be a onetime grant award. The ministry Grant will be used for programs which focus on outreach and evangelism ministry. The program will support a vision of ministry that aligns with the mission and vision of the Miami Baptist Association which is: “to develop authentic relationships and to empower the local church to be salt and light in the communities they serve.”
