Missions Conference 2023 has wrapped up.
As we contemplate what we heard over the weekend, here is a sobering piece of information for you:
“We have enough money and people to send missionaries to every unreached people group. But not enough people are giving, and not enough people are going.
It’s estimated one missionary is needed for every 50,000 unreached persons. As a result, we need 66,547 more missionaries to serve these people. Since it takes $59,500 a year to support a missionary, we need $3.96 billion a year to support these missionaries.
It sounds like a lot of money. And it is. Yet evangelical Christians together earn $5.98 trillion dollars a year. That means if every evangelical gave an extra $6.63 for every $10,000 we earn, that would cover all missionary financial costs.”
