SCBI-NAMB Evangelism Grant Funds

SCBI/NAMB Evangelism Grant Funds Available October 1, 2023-September 30, 2024

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”  (Matthew 24:14)

Jesus has commissioned our churches to proclaim the gospel throughout the world.  SCBI is committed to partnering with our churches to discover and fulfill their next step in proclaiming the gospel in your local community. To assist in this, the North American Mission Board provides evangelism funds to SCBI churches and collegiate ministries that can be used for evangelistic events.

What are the criteria for requesting funds?

  1. An evangelistic event must present the gospel to unbelievers and generate opportunities for Gospel conversations, must provide an opportunity for people to respond to the Gospel, and must implement a plan to follow up with those who make decisions/express interest. Examples: block parties, evangelistic rallies, projects to serve the community where the Gospel is shared, etc.
  2. Note: These funds are not intended to be used for new equipment for churches or collegiate ministries, paying church staff, making church building improvements,  paying for church or collegiate mission trips, for large bulk mailings, etc.
  3. To request these funds, please click the link above. Once we receive your request, the Church and Leader Mobilization Team leaders will review and respond to you. If you are approved to receive the funds, we will notify you about when you will receive the grant funds.
  4. After the project, the church or collegiate ministry must submit to SCBI a written report with their project results, receipts to verify how the funds were spent, and any unused funds so that SCBI can account to NAMB for the use of these funds.

Frequently asked questions:

  1. What is the maximum amount that can be requested? Because limited funds are available from NAMB, the maximum request amount per church or collegiate ministry will be $2,000 between October 1 to September 30.   Please note that there are limited amount of funds available, so once that amount has been reached, the funds for that current year will not be available. 
  2. Can we request funds more than once?  Yes, but the requests cannot exceed the $2,000.  For example- if you are hosting a Fall Festival outreach in the fall and then a Easter outreach in the spring, you could request $1,000 for each event. 
  3. Can we spend for a project in advance of receiving the SCBI/NAMB funds and then be reimbursed for our expenses? If your church has already submitted a Church Request Form to SCBI (as explained above) and you have received an email from our Office that your project was approved for a certain amount, then “yes” you can spend as necessary according to the approved amount.

Imagine what could happen this year…if every SCBI church, church plant and collegiate ministry used these resources to effectively share the gospel with unbelievers, to follow up on the decisions that will be made, and to engage the project participants in one of our local churches. This could be the greatest year ever for God’s Kingdom advancement in Indiana!
