Interested in becoming a missionary, but not sure what the significant people in your life think about it? This free resource offers ways to broach the subject with wisdom and compassion.

Fear of asking for money keeps some people out of missionary work—thankfully many of those concerns are not based on reality. This guide considers three perspectives that can erase the shame that some folks feel.  

It’s a big world out there. If you are thinking about becoming a missionary but don’t know where you want to go or what you want to do, start by thinking through the three categories in this resource.

Will I have to raise support?

Yes, but you won’t have to do it alone! SEND coaches will create a customized salary based on location, type of ministry, and family size. Then, we will help you build an incredible support team, just like we've done for hundreds of other SEND workers.

Am I ready?

If you can say “yes” to just five questions, you meet the initial qualifications to become a SEND missionary! (And you don’t need to have decades of ministry experience or speak a second language.)
