Our Support

As we travel to Italy to serve the Lord as church planting missionaries, we are only a small part of a large team.  We need supporters to pray for us, give financially, and encourage us.  Here are some ways that you can have a part in our ministry.  

And if you are already a part of our team - THANK YOU!  The ministry that the Lord does through us will add up to your "account".  

"Not that I seek for the gift ; but I seek for the fruit that increaseth to your account."  - Phil 4:17

Updated Support Needs

Financial Support
(78.5%)

We are thankful to the Lord for His provision over this last two year term.  What we had thought impossible, God brought to pass.  Despite the fact that we were well short of the "minimum" support that Crossworld recommends for Italy, the faithful support of Milan Bible Church, along with an inexpensive apartment and a relatively strong dollar, enabled us to serve in Italy for the past two years.

 However, with the home going of both our mom's (and the loss of their support) as well as the loss of a supporting church (changing their ministry vision), at the start of this home ministry, we found ourselves $600/mo. short of the support that we need just to get by in Italy. 

The good news is we gained some additional support.  The bad news is that the dollar has fallen dramatically in value against the Euro since then, forcing us to increase our salary to make ends meet.  We now find ourselves $665/mo. short of the funding we need.  Without at least that much support, we simply cannot continue to serve full time in Italy.

Are you interested?

If you would like our current support figures or would like a breakdown of what is included in our support amounts, please contact us and we will be happy to send that information to you.

So, how can you help?

If you would like to help with our financial support, it is possible to do so in three ways:

  • Pledged support  This would be an amount that you pledge to send in monthly, quarterly or even annually.  You would begin sending in these amounts as soon as you make the pledge.  If you want to support us in this way, please let us know so that we can update our figures.

  • Advance support  For those who can not pledge or prefer to give occasional gifts, It is possible to give a single gift towards our support for our current term.  For example, a one time gift of $480 would provide $20 a month in support for this next two year term (through summer 2019). If you would like to give this type of  support, please designate your gift as "advanced support" so we will know to use it in this way.

  • Occasional gifts  Some people also send in occasional one time gifts.  These gifts can help with unexpected expenses or help us cover a shortfall in our pledged support.
