Be a part of getting the Gospel to those who’ve never heard and planting a mature, self-sustaining tribal church. This is God’s work, and He funds His work through His people. God could just rain money from the clouds for His work if He wanted, but instead He gives us the opportunity to partner with Him in what He’s doing around the world. Isn’t it incredible — the God of the universe lets us have a part in His work! He owns everything we “have”, anyway, so in giving to His work, we’re just giving back to Him out of gratitude for all He’s given us.
As missionaries with Ethnos360, we get the opportunity to trust God to provide regular support through individuals, rather than the organization giving us a salary. We’re responsible to cover all our ministry and personal expenses, including our “benefits” (such as taxes, health insurance and retirement) that would normally be covered by an employer (Click for Budget). It’s been exciting for us to be living by faith, trusting God to stir the hearts of His people to invest in what God is doing through us. And He has been faithful to provide us with what we need when we’ve needed it.
