Reasons to Give
By the Numbers - Where do your donations go?

Why do we fundraise?

In 1923 the organization now known as Metro Ministries, Inc. was charged with focusing attention, energies and monies on local mission projects.  The corporation was formed for the purpose of using closed or abandoned churches in the district and using the funds for developing new churches, developing new arising ministries and make special grants and requests that aid in building churches and expanding existing programs. In 2009 when the two Indiana conferences were formed into one Indiana Conference, the policies were changed where closed or abandoned church funds no longer were given to Metro Ministries.  Metro Ministries, Inc. needs to fundraise to make up the void this policy left.

Where do your donations go?

Children & Youth Grants

Over the past eight years, Metro Ministries has used ministry donations from churches and individuals to provide $30,000 for Children & Youth Grants that serve hundreds of children and youth each year. The focus is on programs that provide leadership development, risk-taking mission and engaging with the poor.  Grants are given through a grant process that provides grant writing support and resourcing through bringing leaders together.

2017-2018 Goals

Metro Ministries Board and Grant Team goals are to increase the grant giving to $40,000.  

Connect, resource, support and partner with local churches and community outreach ministries that are looking at their community, seeing a need, and then developing a program that meets the need.
