The focus at the World Missions Center
(WMC) is to provide stability throughout
the missionary process. The WMC functions
behind the scenes as a hub to provide a
myriad of services for the missionary. It may
be the health insurance program that has
literally saved the lives of missionaries in
trouble or brought them home in a time of a
medical emergency. Or it may be the Finance
Department that handles more than three
million dollars in donations per month.
The home office staff are the “unsung heroes” of the
missionary team. We have called the home office
many times for many different reasons over the
years. They are always kind, very helpful and ready
to do anything they can to accommodate whatever
needs we may have. Thank you, home office staff!
You make our job on the field tremendously easier
and fruitful! Because of you we are able to spend
our time reaching others for Christ.

Missionaries enjoy stability by participating
in the Enrichment Week held each year for
furloughing missionary families. Special
activities, cookouts and guest speakers are
planned for the whole family. The WMC staff
gives of their time to make this a special week.
The World Missions Center also helps
missionaries get into foreign countries.
This may involve letters of guarantee sent
to governments around the world assuring
that our missionaries will not be a financial
burden to their country. Letters often have
