MISSIONS & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Missions Grant and Scholarship
“Serving Others, Inviting Others” is a ministry grant and mission journey scholarship awarded by the Board of Missions from the conference undesignated missions giving fund (EOC Fund 9001). The board will meet twice a year to review applications. Contact Melanie Thomas at (330) 499-3972 ext. 102 or by e-mail if you have any questions.
The Spring 2023 application period closed on April 10. The grant will be available again if funding is available, next deadline is to be determined by the Board of Missions.
Each individual requesting scholarship funds should be a member of an East Ohio United Methodist church, participating in an UMVIM mission trip with an UMVIM trained team leader, be prepared to share your UMVIM experience through a story, photos, and/or computer slide show upon your return.
Every year the Conference Volunteers in Mission Coordinators provide information about the mission teams for that year to the Jurisdiction Offices, which compile reports for the General Board of Global Ministries. This information then becomes a measure of the scope of mission volunteering in the United Methodist Church. If your church or district or other entity had a work trip this year, please send the report form to the address below the form. It is important for us to do our best to provide complete and accurate information on file for the use of the GBGM, so please report Youth trips as well as Adult trips.
