Q »

If I am considering becoming a missionary should I start my own 501(c)(3) ministry?

A »

The purpose of mission sending agencies like Go To Nations, is to help lighten the load of the missionary by providing certain key services that will eliminate the need and the work of maintaining your own 501(c)(3) status.

Starting your own non-profit is an option; however this route requires a greater level of expertise and will require greater responsibility upon the missionary, an expense and manpower that is often not available. Having your own 501 (c)(3) can also isolate a ministry and keep them from the benefit of the growth that comes from planning and working with others of like mind.
