Faith in Rural Communities CONNECT Cohort Applications Open Now

August 12, 2020

CONNECT is a program offered by the NC Rural Center's Faith in Rural Communities initiative, which aims to help churches renew their faithful witness and connect with opportunities to improve the health and prosperity of their communities. There is no fee for Duke Endowment-eligible churches to participate.

The nine-month CONNECT program provides coaching in asset-based community development, resources, and grants to increase a church’s missional engagement impact. Our coaches and experts focus on your church and your community—it's the CONNECT advantage. In turn, your church commits to creating a team of 6-10 people interested in leading missional engagement. This team agrees to meet at least twice per month over the nine months. This year's cohort will be conducted online until conditions improve.

Applications are due August 24th. Apply here.
