Evangel Grant Applications
God’s call for mission is specifically given to those gifted individuals whom he charges to establish outposts of the Kingdom of God in “enemy occupied territory.” With neither guarantees of protection, provision, nor success, God nevertheless promises that the presence of the Captain of the Lord’s Army will accompany them throughout their journey, even to the very end of the age (Matt. 28.18-20). Faithfulness to this divine calling of the Holy Spirit represents the primary duty of God’s church planting band (II Timothy 4:7; Acts 26:17-19). Throughout history, men and women of God have heard and responded to God’s call to evangelize, make disciples and establish churches in places where Christ is neither known nor worshiped. Many times, these courageous apostolic teams have deployed in dangerous communities, often without provision, and under threat of the loss of their very lives (Hebrews 11:36-38). These modern-day apostles have exemplified what it means to be dead to themselves but alive to Christ (Galatians 2:20). Without their valor, obedience, and faith, the Gospel would not have gone to many places where today healthy assemblies of Christ are worshiping and bearing witness to his Kingdom.
Informed by this missional commitment and understanding:
- We seek to provide a financial blessing to Evangel chartered church plant teams that have been commissioned and empowered by the Holy Spirit to evangelize, disciple and plant churches among the forgotten poor.
- Make no guarantees that there is funding in the Evangel Grant.
- If there are funds available, the Evangel Grant goes to the Team and not a specific individual. The Team Leader works with the team as to how best use the financial blessing.
