Each year, the Pacific Southwest District offers loan repayment grants for newly graduated called church workers in the first three years of their first call serving in the district. This year the grant fund has $6,000 to offer to workers who fit that criteria. If you are a newly called pastor, teacher, DCE or other rostered church worker, consider applying for the 2019 grant. The application deadline is Oct. 15, 2019.
Grants are determined annually with recipients of prior grants needing to apply each year during their eligibility period. If you have questions please contact Dave Rueter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The funds for this grant are made possible because of the Harvest Endowment and the Church Worker Loan Repayment Fund. Individuals and congregations that wish to support future church workers through this grant may donate to either fund through the district office. Please list the particular fund you are donating to in the memo line.
