UMCom Grants Available
United Methodist Communications grant applications are now open in two categories: New Church Starts and Website Development.
New churches can apply for a 2018 grant for communications focused on community outreach and establishing your presence in the community. Applicants should identify at least two community events that they will attend to promote their new church. UMcom grant specialists will work with you to identify promotional materials that will fit your needs to best market your church to the community.
Website Development Grants are primarily for United Methodist churches who do not currently have a website. Through this new grant, United Methodist Communications will offer the following:
- One year of webhosting
- One year of domain name registration
- Free WordPress online training through UMCOM
- Free online support throughout your training and during your year of web hosting
- Free pre-designed templates for easy development of your new website
United Methodist churches who wish to replace their current website with a WordPress site may also apply. They can transfer their present URL, but will have to rebuild the entire website on WordPress.
