Because Missionary Acres is mission owned, the staff is not paid salaries. Instead, our financial support team will provide for all of our personal living expenses and the costs related to serving at this ministry (medical insurance, travel, vehicle, etc.)
Our financial support team currently includes 12 churches and 34 individuals/families. Each has determined what amount they will contribute monthly. This ranges from $25 to $460/month. (1% of our total support is $65.) Donations can be made monthly, quarterly, or annually. They are all distributed to us on a monthly basis.
Only when both our monthly financial support and our passage expenses are fully funded, will we move to Missionary Acres.
Reach out to us if you have questions. God is calling more people and churches to partner with us. If you are one of them, we would love to hear from you!
Our passage account will cover one-time expenses as we move to Missionary Acres. This will pay for our move from Iowa to Missouri and allow us to buy a newer vehicle for traveling. $15,750 is needed to fund our passage account.
Our future home at Missionary Acres needed extensive remodeling. Much of this work is paid for and done. Remaining needs:
- Flooring $4000
- Kitchen cabinets $4000
- Paint, bathroom fixtures, etc. $3000
- Major appliances $2500
$13,500 is needed to complete our home remodeling.
Donations for our house can be made to Baptist Mid-Missions - designated Missionary Acres house #54.
