How to Give

How much financial support do Reliant missionaries have to raise?

Missionaries are responsible to raise 100% of the support goal needed for the ministry. Reliant does not have a central source of funding, but relies on the generous gifts of donors to support missionaries. Our local church partners sometimes can provide a small portion of missionary funds, but the nature of their ministry and partnership with Reliant means that the church or non-profit is reaching out in an environment where they must rely on outside Christians to make the work of ministry possible.

Missionaries raise a monthly budget that has been calculated and approved by Reliant and the local church or ministry. We often call this the support goal. Missionaries do not determine their own support goal.

The support goal monthly budget is the total amount needed to employ the missionary and make the ministry effective, so it covers:

  • Approved Missionary Salary
  • Medical & Dental insurances for individual and family dependents
  • Ministry travel expenses (including additional mission trips)
  • Approved ministry-related tools, materials and supplies such as computer, software, Bibles
  • Educational and professional education in theology, ministry, or directly-related fields.
  • A portion to cover the Reliant missionary support team (about 10% of total giving)
  • A buffer amount to cover gifts that donors may indicate they intend to give but later cannot.

The specific amounts of monthly support vary widely depending on the level of experience of the pastor or missionary, the scope of their responsibility, the norms for their church or ministry, and cost of living adjustments.

International missionaries calculate support goals differently than our domestic missionaries. Their support goal is directly related to cost-of-living calculations, travel, currency rates in their country, and more.
