Support from Governing Body – Extract of Minute
Grants through the Life and Mission Agency are available for ministries that are under the oversight of a court of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Examples of governing bodies and ministries for which they provide oversight could include:
Presbytery – congregations and local missions
Synod – camps
General Assembly – colleges
Questions about oversight and governing bodies can be answered by staff in Canadian Ministries.
All applications require the endorsement of the ministry’s governing body. The following example provides all the necessary elements of an extract of minute that will be required for a complete application; the example can be used to make a motion at a presbytery or synod meeting. If the application is endorsed, the Clerk of Presbytery or Synod or the Secretary of a Board will provide the applicant with a copy of the extract to upload to the application.
Example: On motion of J. Calvin/J. Knox, upon review it was agreed that the Presbytery of Caledonia endorse the application and supporting documents from St. Andrew’s, O’Leary, PE to the Avondbloem Experimental Fund in the amount of $750 to support the [program name] in 2015.
The deadline for the Supporting Ministries Grant is October 1.
