Grant-Funded Online Courses and Financial Assistance Grants
Our denomination has been chosen to receive grant-funded online courses to better serve our pastors, leaders and congregations. We have also been given matching grant funds to provide a limited number of financial assistance grants to a number of pastors in need.
Financial Assistance Grant
$1000 in retirement account matching contributions will be provided to the first 100 pastors newly enrolled in the FCMM Retirement Plan who apply, are approved, and complete the God is Your Provider Personal Finances course (with spouse, if married).
