The purpose of ‘Reconciliation’ within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is “to nurture the wholeness of the church by dismantling systemic racism and other oppressive structures toward becoming a church that demonstrates True Community, Deep Christian Spirituality, and Passion for Justice.” The Reconciliation Grant funds ministries and projects that promote Reconciliation within our Region.

The deadline for Reconciliation Grant applications is January 31, 2015. Once received, applications are reviewed by the Church in Society Committee. Recommendations for funding are then submitted to the Finance Committee, and subsequently approved by the Regional Board. Approved funds are made available in May.
