Outreach Seed Grants

Supporting Local Outreach

Outreach Seed Grants are $300 grants to members of Ohio District churches to support new or established congregational outreach efforts. Members of official missions of Synod in the Ohio District may also apply. The Outreach Seed Grant Application is available to download using the link on the sidebar of this webpage. Instructions for submitting the application are on the application.

What Happens Next
The New Ministry Task Force considers applications on a monthly basis. Decisions of the task force are e-mailed to applicants. The number of grants available varies from year to year. A church can apply for two (2) grants per year, as long as the report on the initial grant is submitted before the second grant is requested. Contact Rev. Derrick Hurst at 937.209.0321 or email: hurstd@oh.lcms.org for more information.
