Finance personnel bring their skills with details and numbers to help teams manage financial resources.  Our finance team strives for the highest accuracy and accountability with our supporters, local governments, and missionaries. On the field, our team keeps track of incoming funds, exchange rates, capital purchases, and overall financial coordination for the various ministry teams. It also ensures compliance with all financial rules in the host country and coordinates spending reports back to the central office in the US for tax purposes.

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.
