The Teaching of the Bible Grant program provides support for teaching the Bible at Presbyterian-related colleges, universities, and secondary schools. Previous awardees have used the grant to develop new curriculum and experiment with the approaches to teaching. Programs led by chaplains have offered an emphasis on developing spiritual gifts through small group study, community building, outreach, and spiritual formation.
Thank Offering grants range from $5,000 to $50,000. Grant requests come from a variety of sources including PC(USA) governing bodies, health agencies, overseas churches, ecumenical councils, community groups, educational institutions and church related groups. The offering funds projects such as agricultural development, child care, community organization, criminal justice, drug counseling, economic justice, elderly care, employment training, homelessness, literacy, violence and women’s concerns. At least 40 percent of this offering supports health ministries throughout the world. Projects must meet the criteria established by Presbyterian Women.
