Since 2005, the Foundation has awarded grants to 364 evangelism projects totaling more than $26 million. Even in this economic downturn, the Lord continues to enable the Foundation to fund evangelism projects around the world. We are thankful! Following is a list of the types of evangelistic ministries that have recently received grants:

  • ministry to those in prison, providing special celebration services and counseling
  • ministry to urban centers, providing day-camp access, one-day outreach events and urban discipleship strategies
  • ministry to specific communities where a Foursquare church plant is one of the outcomes
  • ministry to specific language groups, such as Spanish- and Russian-speaking people
  • ministry in communities devastated by natural disaster ministry to those who struggle with addiction
  • ministry to children, involving Vacation Bible School during Christmas and summer breaks, and Sidewalk Sunday School clubs
  • ministry to children and teens through drama training, music instruction, and weekend “nightclub style” services

If you have a vision to actively reach your community, please consider the Foursquare Foundation as a potential partner. For questions regarding a potential proposal or the Foursquare Foundation grant process, please contact Joe Wainer at 213.616.0076, or by e-mail.
