2020 and 2019 Grant Recipients
A total of $79,000 was awarded in 2019 and 2020. This funding opportunity generated a great deal of interest, affirming the CMO’s belief that on-the-ground United Methodists are catalysts for creativity, justice and compassion in their communities.
The emphasis for 2021 grant applications will be on efforts that focus on building racial justice and equity led by or in mutual partnership with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color) churches and communities. The application window is January 15 through March 31, 2021.
As always, we are available to assist grass-roots effort to build relationships with neighbors, especially those who are marginalized or vulnerable (namely the impoverished).

The purpose of these Center for Missional Outreach grants is to be a catalyst for making the “ministry with” dreams of local churches in the North Texas Conference a reality. Grants are for new efforts or efforts that catalyze existing ministries with creativity and innovation.
A limited number of grant award amounts will range from $5,000 to $10,000. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
Racial Justice Emphasis: This year, the Ministry With Grant application review process will pay particular attention to ways that efforts intend to catalyze efforts that focus on building racial justice and equity led by or in mutual partnership with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color) churches and communities.
Please take note that applications will be evaluated according to how they intend to live into the “ministry with” values below:
*Making disciples, in our view, can happen in a variety of ways. In the midst of a church’s ministry with its neighbors, church people could be intentional about recognizing and seizing opportunities to share their faith and invite their neighbors onto a pathway of discipleship. In the midst of a church’s ministry with its neighbors, church members could find themselves stretched and their faith and experience of the Holy Spirit deepened. These and other ways of making disciples could be legitimate responses to this question.
