Mission Development Unit




The Mission Development Unit of New Castle Presbytery is continually seeking ways to partner with your congregation in challenging us all to grow in our faith and to serve in mission as Christ’s faithful disciples.

Each year we invite congregations to submit proposals requesting funding from the Mission Development Unit of NCP to help support the exciting mission work that is going on locally, nationally and globally.

In the past several years, the projects have been as diverse as feeding people who are hungry, housing people who are homeless, sending people on domestic and overseas mission trips and supporting missions in Africa and Guatemala. Funding ranges from $1,000 to $10,000 per project.

Even as we face continued reductions in budget allocations for mission (this year we may face as much as 50%!), we believe mission is our calling as Christians and the heartbeat of our life together as a Presbytery. So we encourage you to let us know if you have a mission project to propose locally or globally!


Our Unit only provides funding once each year, so past projects must re-apply.   The 2017 funding cycle is currently open! Applicants who apply by the October 21, 2016 deadline will be notified  in mid-November to early December. The funds will become available in early 2017 and must be expended by December 31, 2017.  Grant documents can be downloaded by clicking on the following links:
