Grow Grants

GROW GRANTS to Support Mission and Ministry

In March 2022, the CHUMC Leadership Team established a fund to assist in the development of new ministries and to offer additional support to ministries or mission experiencing growth and or innovation at Colonial Heights UMC.

The goal of all approved grants is to accomplish the goals of Colonial Heights United Methodist Church to make disciples for the transformation of the world

Again, the purpose of this grant is to support growth and innovation. It is not designed to pay for debt and existing ministry operational costs or used to pay salaries or stipends.

Grow Grant Recipients Include: CHUMC Children's Ministry, Kitchen of Hope Meals, ETSU Wesley Foundation Support, Dzobo United Methodist Church in Zimbabwe, Czech Mission in Vimperk
