Missional Operations Grants (MOGs) are available to all Conference congregations for creative partnerships and new possibilities for missional engagement both in the surrounding community and farther away. These partnerships are intent on mutuality, rooted in considerations of enacting justice, building on strengths, and calling forth new and next-generation leaders. The ministries and projects that have been funded by Missional Operations Grants are those building on the Mennonite tradition of faith and are trying new and creative initiatives to engage their own communities or people around the globe. To apply for a Mission Operations Grant, talk with your Leadership Minister.
The following criteria are used to discern grants requested:
- Connecting leaders and churches around the Great Commission.
- Strong investment in leadership development, especially of young people.
- Wise stewardship by avoiding duplication and dependency.
- Commitment to mutual accountability in intercultural relationships.
- Advocating evangelism, reconciliation, and justice.
- Multiplication of disciples, leaders, and ministries.
- Building mutual capacity among mission partners.
- Emphasizing gifts by building on capacity of all participants.
- Regular cultural relevance checks and adjustments of all initiatives.
