The Matthew 25 fund has helped support nearly 40 new ministries.
The Matthew 25 Initiative was established after Archbishop Foley Beach outlined his vision to use a generous grant from an anonymous donor to help churches reach the poor and needy in their communities. After only eighteen months of effort and development of these programs, the Matthew 25 fund has helped support nearly 40 new ministries. On Monday, March 6, 2017, Phase Two of the Matthew 25 Initiative will launch.
For this phase of the initiative, Archbishop Beach secured a dollar-for-dollar matching gift of up to $1,000,000 if the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) can raise $1,000,000.
Now, as financial support is being raised within the province, the Matthew 25 Initiative is opening up a grant request cycle to receive a new set of applications from programs and ministries within the ACNA. As these applications are received, studied, and prayed over, they are also juried by a group of leaders within the ACNA who have extensive experience in this level of outreach ministry.
If you are an interested ministry you can apply for a grant from Matthew 25 for between $3,000 and $25,000.
