"When you believe in someone and demonstrate that belief, they begin believing in themselves too."
John C. Maxwell


fuel your dream

One of our core values is "thinking forward", as in, developing new approaches in impacting our community, equipping leaders, and reflecting the kingdom of god.


as we hope to emerge from the covid-19 pandemic, we wanted to find a way to encourage and bless entrepreneurs and small business owners whose dreams are still alive. Maybe they're waiting for someone to come along and affirm them and give them a push forward. our church is that partner!

this is why we are launching the forward fund /// a monthly grant (up to $500) awarded to one business, with coaching and marketing assistance provided for that month. we believe that when the time comes, these businesses will be kingdom-minded and invest back in our church, our community, and beyond.

more details:

  • funds are derived from outside of the church budget, pooled from business owners who want to help others move forward. no tithes and offerings are used for funding this grant.

  • program is for the remaining months of 2021 with a possible renewal in 2022 based on outcome. 

  • applicant businesses can be existing businesses or startups.         

  • business can be brick & mortar or online. 

  • must be a for-profit business selling goods and/or services.      

  • for non-profit/ministry support consideration from the church, email us at:

  • must be a type of business that our church can publicly support and promote. each month's recipient will be featured on the church's social media accounts, website, and newsletters.

  • a business plan is required for review. applications will be reviewed by forward church leaders and supporting business owners. 

  • priority is given for forward church members in good standing, but is open to all local area business owners regardless of involvement.

  • this is a grant (a gift), not a loan, or an investment for profit-sharing.
