First Cycle 2015 DREAM Grant Opportunity
The Developmental, Risky, Experimental, Adaptive Mission (DREAM) Grant is being offered by the Presbyterian Mission Agency in order to encourage dreamers, risk-takers, pioneers and trailblazers. This grant is designed to encourage the birth of new ventures through congregations and presbyteries rather than to support the expansion of existing programs within congregations. During 2014, preference was given to ministries that fall within the bounds of the Synods of Alaska-Northwest, Boriquén in Puerto Rico, Rocky Mountains and Southwest, but this year all synods are encouraged to consider making application. To learn more and to apply for this grant, click Dream Grant Application.
