Funding Your Project

So you have an idea. You have prayerfully considered the needs of those you plan on serving. You have gathered a great team to engage in your new venture. Now you need to work on funding.

All too often projects get stuck in this phase. If you do not have a church or other ministry backing your endeavor (and even if you do), finding the funds to start your project can be incredibly daunting.

Thankfully, there are a number of organizations that recognize this difficulty and provide funding for burgeoning projects that are willing to engage in innovative ministry.

This week we would like to introduce one such organization, Duke Divinity School’s Leadership Education program. One of the grants this organization offers, the Traditioned Innovation Award, provides $10,000 in funding for initiatives that engage in experiments to transform communities by living out the convictions of an ancient faith in the current challenging circumstances. Does this description sound familiar? It seems like it is right out of the missional entrepreneurship playbook!

If you think this award might be a good fit for your project, you can learn more on their website.

First Day of School Feelings

First Day of School Feelings

There’s something magical about the first few days and weeks of school. There is so much possibility in new beginnings, fresh starts, new opportunities, and new friends. It is a time where anything could happen and there is always the possibility of things being different, better, at least more interesting, this time around. 

Sacred Systems

Systems can seem not only unsexy but rather unspiritual. But we at Ministry Incubators believe that there is a solid case to be made for the use of systems as foundational for our faith.

So here’s the question, when the crop is stolen, do we plant the garden again next year? When we do fail, when our team falls apart, when our project fails due to circumstances that we couldn’t have planned for, and which very well might happen again, do we have it in ourselves to try again?
