      - Outreach ministries (new ministries and expansion of existing ministries to reach new people)
      - Kids Count (ministries that create church and school partnerships)
      - Culture of Call (programs that help individuals hear and discern their call to ministry)
      - Young Adult/Campus ministries (ministries that build relationships with college students or other
         young adults, ages 18-35)

Hunger grants: The planning teams for the fall mission events that are held each year throughout the Dakotas Conference designate a portion of the funds raised for hunger programs in North and South Dakota. A subcommittee of the Missional Impact Link recieves and reviews applications for grant funding. The primary focus of the grants are for programs that serve hot meals with time for fellowship.  If you are aware of such a program in your area and you think part of the funds could be used there, please nominate them for a grant.

Kuhler memorial grant: This grant will assist local churches in preserving and interpreting their local histories, and making their stories accessible to support their disciple-making, world-transforming mission. Grants are awarded for specific projects or on-going ministry that preserves, interprets and brings public access to the local church's history.  Learn more
