Congregation Health Ministry Grants
“I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance.” John 10:10
The Congregation Health Ministry (CHM) Grant Program enables ministry leaders to move inspired whole person health and wellness ideas into action within congregations. These one-year, $2,000 matching grants for new and innovative programs are open to Lutheran congregations committed to becoming centers of health and hope in their community.
