The Brethren Faith in Action Fund announced a $5,000 grant for the Church in Drive in June, 2021. The grant will fund tech equipment to expand the congregation’s virtual ministries.
The Church in Drive moved online like many other churches during the pandemic. Going forward, it intends to be a hybrid congregation, integrating those joining at a distance and improving the sense of connection between those in-person and online. A hybrid model is an integral part of The Church in Drive’s strategy to plant new college ministries (and from them, new churches) across Michigan. Grant funds will support the purchase of updated audio visual equipment and a CCLI license. The church requested and received a waiver of the matching fund requirement.
