Courageous Church Award

 New & Vital Faith Communities

The purpose of both New & Vital Faith Communities teams, of the Desert Southwest Conference, is to collaborate with church leaders through prayer, sharing of ideas and identifying resources that help faith communities make disciples of Jesus for the transformation of the world.

We believe we make disciples by being a courageous Church; loving like Jesus, acting for justice, united in hope.

The Courageous Church Award is given to churches chosen by members of Vital Faith and the Appointive Cabinet. The award is presented annually at the June session of the Desert Southwest Conference to a congregation who has engaged the community in a courageous way by loving like Jesus, acting for justice and/or uniting people in hope.

The grant is a one-time gift of $5,000.
