Mission Funds

The Presbytery of Chicago is eager to fund great ideas and programs in churches throughout the Presbytery, with a particular emphasis given to helping churches who might not be able to fund these ideas and programs on their own. This funding is available because of the witness and generosity of many faithful Presbyterians who came before us and we are deeply grateful for their contributions to the ongoing ministry of this Presbytery.
Funding currently exists for a wide variety of ministries, some based on the restrictions and parameters created by donors, while others reflect the creativity and openness of 21st century ministry. We hope that these categories will spark your imaginations, rather than limit them.

  • Funding for one-time events, outreach initiatives, or educational workshops
  • One to three year mission opportunities, moving gradually towards being self-funded
  • Support for ongoing mission opportunities that are generating positive results
  • Charitable and religious works
  • Peacemaking
  • Camping and retreat opportunities
  • Campus Ministry
  • Music ministry
Applications for the available funds are being received by the Mission Team. Please note that these applications must be submitted by a church’s Session, not by individuals. The presbytery seeks to partner with congregations in this work.
Instructions are included with the form. Be sure to download the form, fill it out, save it with a new name, and return it to the presbytery as instructed.
