Request Funding

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

Funding Process

  1. Each summer, we invite Organizations/Missionaries currently receiving benevolence funding 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. We require written submission by the Organization/Missionary with selected supporting documentation.
  4. Some committees may require in-person interviews.
  5. Once we receive all submissions and complete all interviews, 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. The committees first submit them to the Church’s Finance Committee then to the Session for approval/modification.
  7. We typically disburse benevolence funding in December of each award year.

To know Christ, to make Him known
and to exhibit His love through worship, education, and service.
