About the Social Service & Ministry Network Grants

Diocesan Council voted unanimously to expand the Social Services Grant Policy to include funding for Network Ministries. Whereas traditional Social Services grants primarily fund much needed programing in a specific geographic area, Networking is about relationships and finding ministry connection possibilities across the diocese not bound by miles and accessibility.

The Diocesan Tent Revival in September 2013 was attended by more than 100 people across the diocese who came together to talk about what human needs flamed their passions for ministry.  The resulting work of our day-long guided workshop set forth a Diocesan initiative to embrace the following social ministries:  poverty, anti-racism, hunger, literacy, recovery ministries, and violence.  Networking grants will facilitate addressing these societal concerns, common to all our communities, from Indian River to Harsen’s Island.
