Oval James Insurance Brokers invite applications from the company’s client churches for its Leaders of Tomorrow Bursary.
The purpose behind the Bursary is to provide small grants to individuals or groups who undertake training, research or study into Youth Ministry, Leadership and/or Development who will at the end of their training put back what they have learned into their own congregation.
Oval James is again able to distribute the bursary courtesy of its Insurer partners Royal & Sun Alliance and Ecclesiastical.
The total amount of funds available is £5,000.
Average grants issued since the Bursary began have been in the region of £200. Examples include:–
* 75% grants towards the cost of Youth Ministry and OCN accredited Youth Work Qualifications.
* £150 for a team building event for new Leaders
* £600 to a church which organised a Youth Leadership Workshop with an outside organisation for its own church and those within the district.
Bursary Grants will not be allocated to ongoing annual subscriptions / training fees, building / capital projects, university fees or travel.
The closing date for applications is July 27 2012. The company anticipates that all grant monies will be issued by September 2012.
Application forms can be obtained by making contact with Roisin McClenaghan on 028 9024 1651 or email email@example.com
