Church Grants Application

The Foundation’s Church  Grant Committee awards grants to newly licensed Religious Science Ministers who have graduated from a School of Spiritual Leadership affiliated with The Centers for Spiritual Living of Golden, Colorado who wish to start a new work.  Grants are also granted for those licensed or ordained Religious Science ministers who are revitalizing existing churches/centers or beginning a work in an area under served.  Grants are given for one year but centers/churches may apply for another grant 2 years after the last grant, depending on their growth and financial stability.  We will only consider salary stipends and rent for a new work for the first 6 months.  We will consider staging, electronics, office equipment, facility upgrade and projects that will enhance and increase your outreach to the community.   You may e-mail questions to Rev. Doré Jacques Patlian, Church Grant Chair. Send a message to Rev. Doré Jacques Patlian.
