How is an mm international worker supported financially?

Our international workers are responsible for providing their own financial support. There are three primary ways our members receive financial support.

  1. Have a job internationally that provides a living wage. For example, teaching in an international school that pays a living wage or run a “for profit” business that is able to support you.
  2. Raise support through your church or other churches, friends, and family.
  3. A combination of a and b.

How long is the process from application to acceptance to deployment?

The amount of time from application to deployment can vary widely and depends largely on your financial set up. If you are raising support, it will typically take longer than if you have a job that will support you. The shortest amount of time for the application process is generally four months.
