We have been blessed financially and want to be faithful stewards of that money, spreading the gospel by supporting the work of ministries that share in our mission to bring glory to God by making disciples. If your ministry is in need of financial support, we encourage you to walk through our application process. Here are the requirements for applying:
- You must align and agree with The Norris Ferry Statement of Faith.
- There must be a Covenant Member of Norris Ferry who will support and endorse your ministry.
- You must complete the application form in its entirety, with the necessary documentation.
In considering requests, we give priority to ministries with a strong and clear gospel-centered vision that are involved in one or more of the following areas: church planting, missions, ministry to at-risk children and single mothers and widows, the sanctity of human life and racial reconciliation. We also give priority to ministries with connections to our church and service opportunities for our people. Our ministry support doesn’t include:
- Benevolence requests
- Missionaries or ministry staff serving for less than one year
- Organizations and individuals that are not financially transparent
- Organizations and individuals with executive compensation considered excessive
Since the application cannot be saved once started, please have the following documents ready:
Before requesting assistance, we ask that you first bring the need to your Community Group. We pursue and live out gospel-centered community through groups and hope that you reach out to your closest community in times of hardship. If you still need assistance, contact us to schedule an appointment with a staff member. This individual will provide guidance and give you further information about what assistance the church can provide.
Hospital and Home Visits
If you or a loved one have been hospitalized, don't hesitate to call on our church body for assistance. We encourage you to ask your Community Group leader for prayer and support. If you are not in a group, you can contact the church for further assistance with a hospital or home visit.
As our desire to serve and assist you in times of loss, we make our facilities available for funerals, but availability is limited. Only certain days and times of the week are open, and those times often change week to week. If you want to check availability and pricing or if you need a pastor from Norris Ferry to conduct a memorial service, please contact us today.
