  • New Pastor Institute: This fund provides orientation and support as new pastors transition to the Region.
  • Lynette Martin Fund: This fund provides grants to church leaders, both lay and clergy, who are pursuing continuing education experiences to enhance their leadership and ministry skills
  • Youth Leadership Core: This fund provides support for the youth of our ABC/NYS churches who are pursuing training in discipleship and, in some cases, can be used to underwrite mission trip experiences.
  • Evangelism and Renewal: This fund provides funding for Region-wide, Associational, TIM groups (Together in Ministry) and other single and multi-church events and seminars.
