Funding Assistance for Small Churches

The Canadian conference is pleased to offer financial assistance for smaller churches with restricted income to attend national events (Gathering and Study Conference). The Canadian conference aims to maximize attendance at national events where participants have the opportunity to network with the larger MB church family and become familiar with the many resources and ministries within the conference.

Qualifications for financial assistance

A Pastor, plus one leader from the church, may be qualified to receive free registration for Gathering or Study Conference events when they meet the following criteria:

  • The church contributes to the Conference Ministry Support Fund (CMSF).
  • Church membership is less than 75.
  • The church’s annual receipted gifts (CRA reporting) do not exceed $200,000.
  • The church is not receiving other funding from the Canadian conference (e.g. emerging church).

(Registrants are responsible for their own accommodations and travel costs).
