Grant & Loan Information:

The Central Bay District has income sources from district ministry shares, interest paid on existing loans and interest from the investment fund. We wisely use this money to carry out the mission and ministry within the lines of the Central Bay District and beyond. Our purpose is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. All our spending and financial decisions are based on that focus.
The district is a resource to the local church to live out their mission of making disciples. Sometimes, a need for financial assistance is needed to make things happen.
We offer both grants to jump start a new ministry or loans to help in building or repairs.Our Vision Team normally meets quarterly and looks over all submitted applications. After discussion, a prayer and vote are taken. Applicants are notified the following week of the decision.
