What’s the application process like?

It’s easy! Click “Apply” above to download the grant proposal form. Complete the form and e-mail it to The Proposal Review Team will vet and respond to the proposal within an estimated 5 business days. If the proposal is approved, we will connect with you about how to proceed. If the proposal is not approved, the team will offer feedback on how to strengthen it for the future.

Does our church have to pay for anything? Do we pay back the funds?

No! Our goal is to support the local church in caring for and engaging their community. The money is a grant given to start the project. There is no requirement to return the funds, only to share your story with us on how the funds were used.

Is the Change the Story grant only for pandemic recovery?

No. This grant process deals with issues arising from the pandemic as well as issues related to racial injustice. There will be another process for funding to encourage community engagement by churches in general which will be available in the fall of 2020.

How much can I request?

In order to expedite distribution and get relief on the ground, we are limiting the first round of the Change the Story pandemic grants to a maximum of $2,500.

When are the proposals due?

Proposals can be sent in now! We will support projects on a first-come-first-served basis, so we encourage you to apply quickly!

Who spoke into the creation of this fund?

This fund was born out of collaborative conversations between Church of God Ministries, our partners in ministry, and the local church. We are leveraging our communication platforms to amplify the stories of impact from the local church, and we are committed to distributing the funds received through these efforts back out to the local church for continued and enhanced kingdom impact.
