Creative Evangelism Endowment

Do you have a passion for creative evangelism?

If your church is planning to experiment with a creative evangelism effort and is located in the Pacific Union Conference, you can apply for special funding to jumpstart your outreach project. Your project will need to be:

  • Creative and innovative.
  • Have a high probability of meeting the stated objectives.
  • Likely to produce measurable results.
  • Structured to have a good investment to return ratio.
  • Able to be replicated by other people in other places.
