Request Funding

Organizations/Missionaries interested in benevolence funding from First Presbyterian Church should contact Mike Crout, Missions Coordinator at or (615) 298-9593.

Funding Process:

  1. Organizations/Missionaries currently receiving benevolence funding are invited each summer to submit a funding request for the next calendar year.
  2. Other Organizations/Missionaries that make inquiry mid-year may be added to the list to receive an invitation at the same time as those funded in the current calendar year; additions are subject to funds availability.
  3. Written submission by the Organization/Missionary is required along with selected supporting documentation.
  4. In-person interviews may be required as determined by the relevant Committee.
  5. When all submissions have been received and interviews completed, the Committees rank the submission according to the Organization’s/Missionary’s ability to fulfill the objectives of our Church’s mission statement.
  6. Each fall the Missions Council assembles and approves the requests of the various Mission Committees to submit to the Church’s Finance Committee and, finally, to the Session for approval/modification.
  7. Benevolence funding is typically disbursed in December of each award year.
To know Christ, to make Him known
and to exhibit His love through worship, education, and service.
