The Diocesan Synod assists parishes by providing loans and mortgages for land acquisition, new construction, or repairs and renovations to parish property. The Fund may be used to provide loans or grants to develop and support parish ministries and parish programming.
This fund may be used for the establishment of missions within a Parish considered necessary for the work of the Church by the Bishop. The definition of mission applied in this situation is "a particular course of period of preaching, services, etc. undertaken by a parish.
Up to 100% of the requested amount may be applied for as a grant rather than a loan
