How to Give

How is the missionary I support paid?

All employed missionaries with Reliant receive a monthly paycheck from us. Missionary salaries are fixed and pre-approved and are drawn from the designated ministry account which covers not only salary but also things like medical benefits and ministry expenses (learn more).

Reliant has no central sources of funding, so missionaries are dependent on receiving the gifts necessary each month to meet their support goal. In cases where not enough gifts have arrived in a given month, a missionary can receive a "short check"—we pay them using the available funds for salary, and then record that they are owed additional paycheck, but that there are not sufficient funds to pay it. This adds up to missionary "backpay."

This can be a risky way to live for a missionary! Fortunately there are two good solutions to a missionary receiving steady support.

  1. Donors to give a regular recurring amount each month help stabilize a missionary by providing a monthly budget amount they can count on.
  2. "Backpay" can be made up later. If Reliant receives a larger gift in a future month, we can apply that to previous missed pay and appropriate forward the funds to missionary and their family.
