I've loved my interaction with Messenger. I've been involved with their ministry for 5-6 years. I appreciate the time they take and the excellence in which they work. I can call in and they know me and care, and even take time to pray if I need something specific. I never doubt where my money is going when I donate either. I've been giving monthly for two years, and I'm so blessed to be able to share in what they are doing for pastors and leaders in so many places around the world. They are such a great team!
I have been observing this ministry for about six years. I have read several of the ministries books and have seen Mr. Bevere speak in public. He is a very humble man of integrity. The ministry follows suit, in that they are transparent in what they do. As a donor, I receive personal comments of thanks from various employees working at Messenger International. They all seem to have the same passion and heart of service that I have seen through the entire ministry. They value and respect their employees by paying above the minimum requirements. I have also researched how they spend contribution money. They are very effective in how it is distributed and put the majority back into their programs.
John and Lisa Bevere operate with the utmost integrity. They desire to be in compliance will all laws and regulations of the land, whether international, federal or local. They work tirelessly to fulfill the mission of the organization. They care so much for their employees and do everything possible to ensure the highest employee morale.
Review from Guidestar
Messenger International exhibits the highest level of integrity and financial transparency that a non-profit can have. They passionately work to fulfill their mission while communicating with honesty to their supporters. As a development professional in the non-profit sector, I am aware that the accepted percentage for programs and services for a fiscally responsible organization is 75%. Messenger International goes over 80%.
My gut reaction to Mr. Bevere's ministry is that this person who teaches how to overcome intimidation ministers with a domineering, prideful, and intimidating manner.
