I’m going to go ahead and leak this today on the blog. In a little while, we’ll share it more broadly. I just think this is too good of an idea to wait to share.
Tomi Grover, who leads the BGCT’s Local Transformational Missions office, passed this note to me today. It looks like a great opportunity for a church looking for a Christmas project.
The convention is partnering with Angel Tree Ministries to offer $250 to any BGCT church that is willing to host an Angel Tree. The Angel Tree program enables people to purchase Christmas presents for children of prisoners.
“Our hope is that the children and their families can connect with your Church and experience the grace of God in action as they receive their gifts,” Tomi said. “The children of prisoners have been blessed in the past by churches who have participated, and we hope your Church is willing to serve these innocent victims of crime as well.”
For more information on how to apply for the one time grant, e-mail Tomi at Tomi.Grover@bgct.org.
