The 2017 Christ-Centered Living Grant Cycle is Now Open!

We're excited to announce the opening of the 2017 CCL Grant Cycle!

The Foundation has commissioned two new resources from Barna Group, the nation’s leading faith research organization – the 2016 Community Faith Survey and the 2017 White Paper on Community Approaches for Advancing Faith in the Tri-State Region. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to review these resources prior to submitting inquiries. Equipped with these resources, applicants will better understand the region’s faith profile, strengths and opportunities, as well as the Foundation’s priorities in this funding area.

Please use the links below to access the White Paper, to apply or to contact us with any questions. To access Barna Community Faith Survey report and related presentation material, click here.

Making the Case

When Christians fully accept the gospel message and put its principles into action, we’re all blessed.

The Christian faith is built upon this truth: Jesus Christ, the Son of God was crucified and resurrected so that each of us may have eternal life through a personal relationship with Him. After making a commitment, Christians have the ongoing opportunity -the mandate - to grow and develop their faith and to share the love of Christ, through word and deed.

What could our region look like with more Christians demonstrating their faith through tangible action? Christ-Centered Living starts with the Christian gospel message, supports meaningful discipleship and learning, and results in believers caring for their communities.

Our Investment

Investing in nonprofits that promote Christ-Centered Living while meeting critical needs will help create the following community changes:

  • More people will hear and embrace salvation through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ
  • More people will reorient their lives around Christ through discipleship
  • More people will impact their environment as an outgrowth of their Christian faith

The Foundation supports the work of faith-based nonprofits through three main priorities:

  • Gospel Received – Increasing opportunities for evangelism; sharing the Christian message with all
  • Gospel Learned – Increasing opportunities for discipleship, learning, and mentoring among Christians
  • Gospel Lived – Increasing coordinated opportunities to meet community needs through giving and service
