THE CHICAGO PARTNERSHIP workS in concert with other funding entities providing matching grants to HELP SUPPORT YOUR NEW CHURCH LAUNCH.
Grant applications ARE ACCEPTED three times a year:
Fall Deadline - September 1
(approved by November)
Spring Deadline - December 1
(approved by March)
Summer Deadline - April 1
(approved by July)
We fund new church plants via both one-time and recurring grants, depending on need and level of alignment. And we offer many other resources, such as help with web development, media, publicity, core group gathering, neighborhood networking, etc. Church planters who believe in the purpose of CPCP and want to participate with us as their church develops are much more likely to receive financial and resourcing support.
We are a relationally driven organization that aims to know the church planters we support and be known by them. Therefore, seeking support from CPCP means building relationships with its partner churches. Church planters are encouraged to attend catalytic events, introduce yourself to CPCP board members, and apply.
The board will then make a preliminary determination at the next scheduled grant approval session (see timeline above) as to whether we believe you to be a qualified candidate for our areas of support. We will communicate our decision to you within six weeks of receiving your completed questionnaire. A final determination and specific offer of support according to the board's belief of how to best help will be made within six months of receiving your completed questionnaire.
Please review The Gospel Coalition Confessional Statement before beginning the questionnaire.
