Request for Proposals

The purpose of the Black Disciples Endowment Fund is to undergird Black ministries within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. This purpose is achieved through grants to ministries of Leadership Development, congregational Growth and Vitality and Responses to and advocacy for the well-being of the African American community.

These grants are given as a fulfillment of the pledge that is made to donors who have invested their resources to enable the vision of the fund and as a means for enlarging the partnership of Christians invested in the enterprise. The Black Disciples Endowment Fund Board of Trustees are looking for opportunities to enlarge this partnership and are interested in projects that demonstrate the empowerment possibilities in this ministry.

For further information please contact Dr. Timothy James at tjames@disciples.org or (317) 713-2407.
