The Minister's Financial Health Grant is a matching grant of $2500 that was established to provide direct aid to pastors and ministers and increase fiscal leadership skills to equip pastors for long-lasting and financially healthy vocations in ministry. The grant funds are for the pastor/minister's personal finances. Grant requests for church finances, building, or ministry expenses will be denied. To be eligible, the pastor/minister must have served for at least one year in their current church and must be serving in a church affiliated with Texas Baptists.

  • Attend a financial seminar with a lay leader from my church (not someone of kin, spouse, or staff member)
