We have a proposal. It is simple – and simply bold. Let’s give away 1 million dollars!

That’s right – $1 million.

So we need champions. A champion is the heart and soul of the Blessing Initiative process. Every project requires a champion. This person is a Colonial member who either has a brand new idea or collaborates with an existing organization to do something new. They can work on their own or with a team, but the champion completes the application, serves as the liaison with the church and Blessing Initiative team, leads the team (if there is one), and cheerleads for the project to build enthusiasm around it. 

Are you a Colonial member? Then what cause will you champion? Now is the time to dream big, so bring your biggest dreams and best plans to the table. 

As you champion a project, know that we're looking for ideas that match these values:

  1. Alignment (Ideas that match the Core Values that emerged out of ReForming)
  2. Engagement (Ideas that invite the congregation to roll up their sleeves and participate)
  3. Relationship (Ideas that engage the congregation years after they've been funded)

What cause will you champion? Now is the time to dream big, so bring your biggest dreams and best plans to the table.
