The Church of the Messiah Endowment Fund was initiated by a large gift by a Messiah member who was passionate about missions. Thus, over the years, the Endowment Fund has existed to fund Missional efforts beyond the general operating budget. With just over $1 million in assets, the Endowment Fund generates about $25,000 to $30,000 per year to be given in the form of grants to new Missional efforts. These grants are awarded through an application process. Grant guidelines can be found here. Applications are available here.
