The 2022 Mission and Ministry Grant fund still has money available! Your synod council has opened a SECOND grant cycle for this year. The process is the same, with a deadline of January 15, 2023 for your application. Grants will be awarded by February 15, 2023. The 2023 Mission Grant applications will be opened the first part of next year.

The Southwest California Synod supports congregations, institutions, and agencies through two grant programs.

The Endowment Committee awards grants to be used for mission outreach as defined in the synod’s mission goals. Typically, grants range from $500 to $5,000.

The Charles and Mable Warner Trust Fund awards grants designated for the construction of Sunday School facilities and to further youth Christian education. Typically, grants range from $1,000 to $5,000, pending availability of funds.

Grant applications must be submitted online no later than Friday, April 1, 2022. In order for an application from a congregation to be considered by the committee, a congregational report (A & C form) for 2021 must be on file. Congregational reports are due March 1, 2022 – please contact Robin Lujan at if you need any assistance.

Grant awards will be announced in May. Grant recipients will be required to work with the Endowment Committee, Communications Team, and Mission Interpreter to share their ministry and the work enabled by their grant with the synod community.
