Young Adult Resources



Young Leadership Innovation Grants

Young Adult Ministry Grants provide seed money to assist leaders in their 20s-30s or to churches who are ministering with 20s-30s in the development of young leaders, including start-up of new, innovative young adult ministries or to enhance a current ministry.

Grants range from $500-$1,500.

Preference in selection will be given to projects that:

  • are collaborative and bring members of the community together.
  • bring new learning into a community.
  • prepare young adults for leadership and/or provide training for young adults.
  • reach those who live in a community and not connected with the church
  • priority will be given to ministries that promote knowing God, sharing Christ, serving others, especially the poor and seeking justice
  • share learnings with the greater church, so we can learn from each other

Those awarded this grant will participate in a quarterly video call to hear about how we are developing young leaders across the Great Plains Conference. Those awarded the grant will use key texts to inform the conversation, including Growing Young, Fresh Expressions and The Connected Life.
