Mission Grants

If you're ready to apply for an individual mission grant, please download this application and return it completed.


The Missions Council decided in 2012 to initiate Mission Grants, a funding program that allows the church to support short-term missionaries from the Gayton family who are participating in mission opportunities through other organizations.

The Council will consider applications based on the following criteria:

The Call

  • We will seek to understand the call that God has placed on the applicant’s life to seek out God’s plan in the world.

The Mission

  • We provide missions funding to organizations who further the vision and mission of our church in ways that the church cannot do on its own. Through our support of individuals on mission, we seek to provide similar support. The Missions Council will seek to understand how the sponsoring organization and the purpose of the experience will help to fulfill the goals of Gayton Baptist Church.

Availability of Funds

  • We have limited funding available to support Mission Grant applicants, and we will evaluate to see what funds may be available to support your request.

Completed applications and reference forms can be returned to the church office at:

Gayton provides grants to individuals connected to Gayton Church, to assist them in mission projects in Richmond, nationally and globally.

For several years Gayton has provided assistance to individuals who are going on a Mission Project that is not directly related to Gayton. College students often participate in mission projects in connection with their campus ministry. Our commitment is to support and encourage our members who are growing in their understanding of God's call in their lives.

In addition, Gayton has provided ministry grants to individuals or ministry partners that we want to support but are not able to include them in our regular budgeting process. We have supported Steffan and Leslie Carr at the Bruce Outreach Center and the YMCA Bright Beginnings programs through these yearly grants.

Personal: Individuals directly connected to Gayton may apply for grants throughout the year. See below for the application form.

Financial: Gayton funds the grant program through the Explore offering collected annually in October.
