Van Sickle Small Rural Church Fund

The Oklahoma United Methodist Board of Laity with the Oklahoma United Methodist Foundation is excited to announce the Van Sickle Small Rural Church Fund.

Small churches will be able to apply for grant(s) by completing this form.

The church\churches will receive recognition during Annual Conference in May.

The key for selection rests in identifying and dreaming about a ministry that can infuse spiritual vitality and bring people closer to Jesus Christ. And if a rural church has capital needs, the fund will match what the church raises up to $5,000.

Application may be found in the link section of awards, grants and scholarships
