What is the Romans Road Award?

In the providence of God, the 1st century Roman Roads provided the needed infrastructure for the Christian gospel to spread to the ancient world.  In 21st century America, there is also an infrastructure by which the Christian gospel can freely spread from our local churches to their community.

 

In that spirit, the Presbytery of Michigan & Ontario has approved a new initiative from our CHEX committee called the Romans Road Award.  The Romans Road Award is a grant up to $3,500.00 from the CHEX Committee administered by the CHEX Office staff for any church in the presbytery.  The goal of the award is to stimulate the extension of our presbytery churches through an active outreach ministry using both digital and traditional means and media.

 

The following are the three types of grants available:
