Donor Engagement Specialists focus on raising the financial resources needed to fulfill our mission. This is accomplished by developing and maintaining relationships with individuals and churches.

The Development Team encourages individuals and churches to partner financially with Pioneer Bible Translators, providing the resources needed to fulfill our mission of seeing a network of churches using Scripture to grow, mature and multiply in every language group on earth.  The Development Team does a variety of things like speaking in front of groups and holding face-to-face meetings to raise funds, providing ongoing communication and encouragement to donors, organizing vision trips to the field, matching donor interests to specific needs, and organizing special fundraising events.

Most of our teammates raise support on behalf of Pioneer Bible Translators for their ministry roles. Support raising is not about money — it’s about prayerfully inviting people everywhere to participate in what God is doing to fulfill His mission.

We provide training to help you:

  • Gain confidence in communicating the Biblical foundation for living on support, asking others to invest, and understanding “The God Ask.”
  • Learn best practices and gain confidence in sharing your presentation.
  • Rehearse with your peers and make real calls for appointments.
  • Experience the value of meeting face to face with people and asking for support.
  • Discover how to cultivate lasting relationships with your supporters.

We will work with you to develop a budget based on your ministry role, where you’re going, and your family’s personal needs. Our goal is for you to be adequately funded to maximize the fruitfulness of your ministry and your family.
