Frequently Asked Questions
What are the age requirements?
Missionary applicants must be at least 18 years old.
How will my overseas ministry be financed?
All missionaries are responsible for raising their funds. A budget, based on field of ministry and length of assignment, will be established. Career missionaries raise the amount by ministering churches where they seek prayer and financial support as well as from friends and family. Missionary associates and short-term volunteers may raise funds through the individual’s church, family and friends, or funds may come from personal accounts.
How much personal debt is allowed?
The monthly maximum debt allowance varies for each missionary category. There is no debt limit for short-term volunteers. Career missionaries and missionary associates have a designated debt maximum that takes into account both personal and educational debt.
Is there any training available?
Career missionaries and missionary associates are required to attend orientation/training in Springfield, Missouri, prior to their departure to the field. Once individuals receive final approval for their assignment, they will receive an official invitation to orientation/training.
How do I donate to an MA?
Assemblies of God World Missions requires completed commitments to equal the amount of the missionary associate’s budget before the missionary associate is authorized to leave for the mission field. Please help missionary associates get to the field by completing and sending this commitment form.
