Missionaries supported through GBM find that their support tends to be raised in
a different way to other mission agencies. Rather than most of their support coming
through individuals such as friends and family, missionaries supported through GBM
will gather most of their support from several local churches.
Our regular supporting churches are committed to supporting particular missionaries
and backing their giving with their prayers. Of course, individual supporters are
also very welcome to give to a particular missionary that they know, or to support
the work of GBM through our General Fund. However, GBM CIO Trustees reserve the right
to use donations for general charitable purposes of the organisation should the need
The structure of our giving is a great encouragement to those who serve. It means
that we take responsibility for organising their deputation as they raise their support.
It also means that we don’t plaster our website with ‘Donate Now’ buttons, because
we want local churches to talk and pray together about who they support as a church,
and we want supporters and missionaries to be closely linked over time. Long-term
mission needs long-term support.
