    "During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. This they did, sending their gift to the elders by Barnabas and Saul." - Acts 11:27-30

    Everyday Disaster Grant

    The Upper New York Mission Central HUB is excited to open the “Everyday Disaster Grant” to benefit local churches in the Upper New York Conference that are working in their community to fight everyday (socio-economic) disasters. These disasters might include, but are not limited to, food insecurity, addiction, racial injustice, violence, or lack of affordable housing.

    Grants will be available up to $2,500. Funding will be prioritized to outreaches that reflect at least one of the core values of the Mission Central HUB.

    These values are:

    • Neighboring and Relationships
    • Diversity in Leadership and Service
    • Justice and Mercy
    • Collaboration and Community

    This funding opportunity is intended to connect, build relationships, and celebrate the impactful outreaches that are happening throughout the Upper New York Conference and are playing a vital role in creating disciples that transform the world. We can't wait to hear the difference you are making in your community!

    Upon completing the application, we will reach out to the pastor of the church and/or contact person listed to confirm your submission and any follow up questions we may have.

    Please send all questions to Kristina Clark, Director of Upper New York Mission Central HUB, at
