Purpose of Grant Eligibility:

The Clergy Covenant Group Grant is being made available for groups of 3-8 Great Plains UMC clergy with the following intent:

  • To provide incentives for existing groups to reimagine their covenant together by enhancing their current group practices
  • To encourage new groups to form
  • To address needs of limited financial resources that may be a barrier for some groups in meeting face to face
  • To enhance the fruitfulness and health of clergypersons
  • The group must be between 3-8 people
  • Your group could include non-Great Plains clergy but funds are only eligible to be used for Great Plains clergy
I believe our request meets this purpose.
I verify that our group meets the above eligibility requirements and has met at least twice before on the following dates.
