2019 Grant Info Sesion
Grants Available and How to Apply
Ministry Grants Program

The Metro Ministries, Inc. Board of Directors is very excited to announce our 2019 Ministry Grants Program! Grants from Metro Ministries are available to:

  • help new programs get started,
  • foster the continued growth of ongoing ministries with a path to sustainability, and
  • address specific needs in the community. 

To qualify for a ministry grant from Metro Ministries, the program or project must focus on one or more of the following:

  • risk-taking mission and service;
  • leadership development, particularly for youth and young adults;
  • and engaging with the poor.

Preference will be given to faith-based organizations and ministries; however, any qualifying organization with programming in the Metro Ministries service area (Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Marion, Morgan, and Shelby counties) is encouraged to apply.

On March 23, 2019, Metro's executive director and board of directors held an Informational Session. During this session, Process, Criteria, and Frequently Asked Questions were reviewed in addition to information about other funding resources. If you did not attend this session but are still interested in applying for a grant from Metro Ministries, please contact Tina McAninch at 317-452-4786 or via email at metrodirector1923@gmail.com the week of March 25, 2019. The Application Deadline is April 15, 2019.

The Ministry Grants Program is just one of the ways Metro Ministries, Inc. connects resources to ministries and ministries to resources. Support for Metro Ministries’ Grants Program comes from individual and church donations, fundraising events, and from the Indiana Conference of the United Methodist Church through the Central District.
