Is your church involved in the fight against AIDS? Or do you know of a church that is doing outstanding AIDS work? If so, check out this email I just got for a chance to win $60,000 for your church’s fight against AIDS-
The Courageous Leadership Award was created to honor churches doing exceptional work fighting the AIDS pandemic. It is not about handing out awards for the sake of lifting up a church or a leader. It is about creating awareness, inspiring engagement, and moving resources to the places that are most devastated by AIDS. One church leader stated recently The Courageous Leadership Award is “a clarion call to the world that the Church is alive and active on the greatest humanitarian emergency of our time – AIDS!”
In 2009 we have re-structured the award categories to honor 3 different types of churches: a “resourcing” church with a weekend attendance “over” 1,000, a “resourcing” church with a weekend attendance “under” 1,000, and a “front-line church“, usually in a Christian fellowship impacted by the pandemic in another part of the world. Each winner will receive $60,000 to put towards its AIDS work. We will also have Honorable Mention and Special Recognition awards for churches that the Selection Committee feels deserve recognition.
If your church has a significant AIDS ministry, please apply If you know of a church that should be considered for the award, please nominate them. Once we receive their nomination, we will contact them directly and invite them to apply.
The application deadline is April 1, 2009 and the awards will be presented and announced at The Leadership Summit, August 6&7, 2009. To apply now, click here.
