EIST Grant 2020 Applications Open
January 3 - March 5
Ethnic-in-Service Training Grants are awarded in sums up to $10,000 and are given to programs designed to bolster recruitment, training and retention of ethnic persons for leadership positions at every level of the church and its ministry. Partnerships and collaborative efforts in campus ministry, chaplaincy and institutions of higher education and general agencies are encouraged, but GBHEM also considers applications for innovative programs in other ministry settings. Proposals may encompass ministries related to areas such as children’s homes, retirement homes, camping and retreat centers, hospitals, the United Methodist Committee on Relief and the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission. Mentoring opportunities and learning contracts with clear goals and measurable outcomes are highly recommended.
