Do you know of any African-American missionaries? Statistics tell us that less than 1% of all missionaries are African-American. Why? Have you ever wondered why there are so few African-American missionaries? There are many challenges that they are facing, but the biggest barrier is funding. How do we overcome this funding difficulty?
VISION 9:38 desires to stand in the gap. VISION 9:38’s committed to empowering and equipping minority missionaries to enable them to labor effectively in the harvest for a lifetime of kingdom impact by providing funding for deserving and qualified minority missionaries, training them in how to raise and maintain funding, and finding innovative fundraising solutions to create a sustainable model.
