This can be done in a number of ways, ranging from reconciliation processes to staff or lay leader training. As such, Re-Imagine Equipping Grants can be used to work with organizations such as Ambassadors of Reconciliation, the Pastoral Leadership Institute or Doxology. Equipping Grants have a ceiling of $5,000 over two years, with congregations providing at least 25 percent of the total funding. For an Equipping Grant Application, CLICK HERE
