Wheat Ridge

Wheat Ridge Ministries, a member of the LSA network, is committed to engaging young adults as the next generation of effective Christian leaders. Through their Burst Grant program, Wheat Ridge supports the creative sparks of young adults called to serve by funding innovative social service start-ups around the country. These programs address needs and critical gaps in communities in a wide variety of ways, from after-school programming to community gardens, services for seniors to resources for immigrants and refugees.

Now in its third year, the Burst Program has awarded over $164,000 in grants. Wheat Ridge recognizes this as a key time to review the impact of the program and consider how to take that impact further. To further their understanding, they are circulating a brief survey. They would appreciate your feedback by completing this brief survey that will take no more than 5 minutes to complete and will shape future programming and grant making. Thank you!

 If you know of young Christian leaders with a passion for service, whether in your life, organization or congregation, please consider sharing this information with them.
