Projects & Special Funds

Church Plant Start-Up Fund
As a church plant begins, many times the missionary is met with added or unexpected expenses. This fund is distributed in the form of a grant to be used toward the expenses of starting a new work. 


Missionary Enrichment Fund
The gifts graciously given to the Missionary Enrichment fund are distributed in the form of a grant for projects designed to enhance the ministry of the missionary.


Retirement Fund
This a matching gift grant established by donors to help missionaries start a retirement fund.


Barnabas Fund
This account holds monies designated by donors to meet special or emergency needs of CBM missionaries. The administration may assign up to $1,000 in any given month to a specific active missionary who demonstrates legitimate lack of finances to meet current needs.


Cunningham Revolving Loan Fund
Through the generosity of donors, the Cunningham Revolving Loan fund was created to assist mission churches in launching building programs. Terms of repayment are established by the Board, as are the rate of interest and the amount available. Loans are extended by the Mission Board on recommendation of the Building Ministries Committee upon review of the church’s official request.

  • Henning Home Repair Fund
  • Wooster Fifth Wheel Fund
  • Detroit Church Plant Building Fund
  • Chinese Translation Ministries
