Want to do more in the community?
Want to serve with others in your church neighbourhood?
Have creative ideas, but few resources?
Need help getting started?
If any of these apply to your church, you may be eligible for the Operation Manna program!
Operation Manna is more than a grant program. Although eligible partners do receive funding, they also receive help from experienced Diaconal Ministries Canada staff in many areas like leadership development, fundraising, strategic planning and more.
Operation Manna is for churches like yours. The program will help you to start or grow a ministry that reaches out into your community with the love of Christ.
Watch one of the videos below to see how one church became an Operation Manna partner and received support for their community ministries:
