Mission Grants

The Rocky Mountain Conference of The United Methodist Church has many grants for churches to apply to assist their local ministries. Please select the links below to learn more about them.

Beyond the Walls

The Conference Board of Discipleship offers Beyond the Walls grants to assist local churches in developing experiments, programs, communication outreach events or collaborations in order to engage people in the neighborhood outside the local church walls. Proposals may be submitted by clergy or lay leaders, and must have at least one pastoral signature and one lay member/leader signature. Applicants may request up to $5,000, but most grants will be between $1,000 and $3,000.


Emerging Ministries

The Rocky Mountain Conference Board of Global Ministries is offering Emerging Ministries grants to assist local churches of the Rocky Mountain Conference of The United Methodist Church in developing new ministries or facilitating the development of new ministry ideas for mission, outreach and education with people who are low-income and/or underprivileged.  Grants will be awarded in the range of $250 to $1,000.


Legacy Fund

The intent of the Legacy Fund is to provide critical funding for projects and encourage ministries that will make a difference and enhance vital congregations through new professions of faith, increased worship attendance, enhanced small group development, or active outreach in mission to the local community and world. The Legacy Fund is administered by the RMC Trustees guided by recommendations from the Legacy Fund Standing Committee (LFSC) for the distribution of grants acquired from the disposition of discontinued or abandoned local church properties and assets as designated by the Trustees for the above stated purpose.


Peace with Justice

The purpose of our team is to provide financial, educational, and programmatic support to local churches seeking to express their prophetic voice in the local communities and beyond! Are you involved in an organization with a justice focus that effectively engages local faith communities in your work? Grants up to $1,500 will be given to organizations that are able to articulate a clear justice mission that incorporates collaborative community partnerships including but not limited to local congregations of The United Methodist Church. Please email Rev. Pat Johnson for more information.
