All across Greater New Jersey, campus ministers and congregations are meeting college students on their campuses and engaging in life-giving ministry and sharing the love of Jesus.
Next Generation Ministries supports and helps bolster campus ministries in GNJ through a strong network of collaboration. One of the many benefits of Next Gen’s Campus Ministry Network is the Campus Ministry Grant program.
Through the program, campus ministries receive funding for a year to pursue innovative, creative and risk-taking ministry that leads to new connections on campus, growing discipleship and student leaders making a difference in their communities.
Program funding is not limited to established campus ministries. Local churches invested in starting a new campus ministry program or supporting a campus ministry with new programming are also encouraged to apply.
Next Generation Ministries will be accepting applications for the 2021-2022 collegiate year in May 2021. As part of the Campus Ministry Network, grant recipients will receive all the tools they need to help their programs be successful, including:
- Regular check-in and coaching calls
- Sharing of best practices and challenges with other campus ministers
- Participation in a yearly planning retreat
- Accountability for attaining program goals
