On average a National Leader needs $600 per month in support.
When needed, gifts are combined in order to meet the needs of a specific leader or worker.
Why National Leaders Are So Critical
Our partnership and development models rely on National Leaders in locally-led ministries where those who are oppressed, marginalized or broken are assisted in practical ways. Our Leaders tirelessly advance the Kingdom of God through the holistic power of the gospel, often at great personal risk to themselves and their families. They serve under one of our ministry partners knowing the culture, language and context of their communities.
13X the impact
The cost of supporting a National Leader is significantly less than other options, making your gift go much further.
Even if disaster or war comes National Leaders will remain. This creates additional trust within the community and the result is transformational change
Understanding the language and culture allows our leaders to assess needs appropriately, build relationships easily and even be granted access to otherwise closed areas
Communities are more likely to take ownership of projects which allows for learning, growth and leaders within the community to be developed

Meet Some of Our Leaders
Bhim Lal from Nepal
“We started the widow program by fasting once a month and donating the food money we saved to several widows we knew needed help. Still today it is considered unlucky to have a widow in your house. It is also taught never to look at a widow in the morning or you will have bad luck all day. We know as Christians this is not how it should be. God said to care for the widows and orphans. So we give special care to widows.”
Selina from Liberia
“I oversee all aspects of the Linda Miclash Girls Home: purchasing food, preparing meals, overseeing homework, taking care of farm animals, collecting water and taking care of all general administrative tasks and financial oversight. I love these girls so much and I really enjoy watching them learn and grow. Every day I want to share with them the love and compassion that Jesus Christ has for them.”
Robert from Syria
“35 years ago, I fought in the Lebanese civil war against Syrians. I was 13 years old when I picked up my first gun. I was the same height as the gun. But God touched my heart and I began to understand God’s will. In the beginning, I was fighting them, but now He has shown me that we must help them. When God changes a person, everything around them changes. You start loving people through His love and not through your love The old Robert died, now it’s the new Robert.”
