What is The Run Project?
The Run Project was created to empower the people of Embrace to run and show the love of Jesus to those around us.
For the next year, Embrace will set aside funds for The Run Project and use them to complete a variety of projects. Instead of creating a bunch of extra ministries within the church, this fund will allow the people of the church to truly BE the hands and feet of Jesus doing projects outside the church—to enter into the messiness of life, to get on the front lines in our own backyards with strangers or even better, people that we already know.
With any project, our goal is to partner with people, not be a savior. Through The Run Project we hope to truly live out the “Run” part of Embrace’s vision. Here are some ideas for potential run projects.
- 1. Anyone can apply. Anyone who considers Embrace their home can apply for a grant of up to $2,000.
- 2. Something local. Projects need to assist something or someone local (other than the person applying or their own family).
- 3. Do it together. Find at least 3 or more people to do a project with!
- 4. Multiply the money. We hope you can get creative & multiply the gift! (Example: Instead of using the $1,000 to help pay someone’s medical bills, the $1,000 could be used to put together a fundraiser to raise $5,000.)
