Self-Development of People

Self-Development of People is a ministry that affirms God’s concern for humankind. We are Presbyterians and ecumenical partners dissatisfied with poverty and oppression, united in faith and action through sharing, confronting, and enabling. We participate in the empowerment of economically poor, oppressed, and disadvantaged people, seeking to change the structures that perpetuate poverty, oppression and injustice.

The Synod of Lakes and Prairies maintains its own Self Development of People Committee. If you believe your organization qualifies for funding, we invite you to contact Synod Executive Elona Street-Stewart.

Applications are due on July 15 each year.

The application is a fillable PDF; you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for free or print the application to complete it by hand.
