We recognize the importance of having a strong funding system. We believe God provides ever-expanding resources to support His work. Here are several funding options to pursue:
Church Planter Champions Grant
The Church Planter Champions (CPC), originally Church Builders Club (CBC) was created to help generate prayer and financial support for new church plants. God has used this network to raise thousands of dollars for church planting efforts. For application details click HERE.
Startup Church Plant Grant
The Church Multiplication of The Wesleyan Church is committed to providing a $4,000 Startup Grant for every qualifying autonomous church plant. *This new grant will be available upon receiving and approving the grant; and as this Startup Grant fund allows.
In order to qualify for the startup grant, church planters must:
1. Complete the Startup Grant Application.

3. Provide an e-document demonstrating District Board of Administration (DBA) approval of the new project.
