Participant Grants

Participants in Foundations of Christian Leadership have the opportunity to apply for a $5,000 Innovation Grant that goes to their institution for an innovation that the participant leads. This grant empowers the participant to put learning into action to serve the mission of the organization.

The Strengthening Ministry Grant provides up to $5,000 to support Foundations of Christian Leadership alumni who work with Christian organizations and other non-profits that engage with Christian congregations.


Traditioned Innovation Awards

Each year, four institutions are awarded $10,000 for responding to challenge by holding the future and past in tension, acting creatively while remaining true to the traditions of the institution and our faith.


Reflective Leadership Grants

Reflective Leadership Grants offer Christian leaders up to $15,000 to fund “balcony time” to reflect on accomplishments, broaden perspectives and discern next steps.


Leadership Development Grants

In 2016 and 2017, the Leadership Development Grants program offered Christian institutions up to $50,000 to nurture the leadership of staff and partners in ministry in a yearlong project.


Capacity Building Grants

These grants offer funds to Christian institutions that are part of African-American, Asian-American, or Hispanic/Latino/a communities in order to improve or develop organizational capacities as they serve pastors and congregations.
