Q »

If we raise up a missionary candidate from our church, are we obligated to fund all of their financial support needs?

A »

The key thing for the pastor is to endorse the candidate as they identify the people who God is preparing to be partners in prayer and finances. Many times more than one church will pledge financial support, while other support may come from family, friends or business associates.

One important thing for the church to remember is that, “there are funds laid up for the global harvest that the church will never see if they don’t propagate missions and support those in their church called to missions” (paraphrase from Paul Brannan, Director of Missions Awareness: Assemblies of God).
