Oval Insurance Broking 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.
The total amount of funds available is £5,000, courtesy of Oval’s Insurer partners Royal & Sun Alliance and Ecclesiastical.
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 September 13 2013. The company anticipates that all grant monies will be issued by October 2013.
