In my recent involvement with Messiah Missions I have found this ministry to be committed to passionate Christ-centered outreach to the most destitute - both locally and globally.
Their mandates are clear; Globally - "Go and make disciples of all the nations.", and equally resounding their Local commission - "You shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.". These directives speak volumes of Messiah Missions strict alignment to Biblical precepts and are truly representative of their Eight Guiding Principles; Integrity, Trustworthiness, Effectiveness, Respect, Empowerment, Excellence, Trust, and Flexibility.
These principles and practices has compelled me to prayerful; giving and/or going as God may lead.
I have been helping this organization for many years now, and I have been simply amazed how God has used the Mission. I support the organization for many reasons. The first reason is because it not only serves global initiatives, but it also helps local causes in our community. Secondly, I appreciate how all of the raised finances go directly to the field and not used to pay overhead and pay checks. This means that Messiah Missions uses volunteer efforts for everything. Because of this Messiah Missions is dependent upon God in every aspect. No wordly strategies or marketing techniques required, but only prayer to God to raise support and volunteers.
After working around 9 years in the non-profit world, I was amazed to see how Messiah Missions devotes 100% of donations to the pastors and ministries it serves, and how it is based solely on volunteer support. Also, the hand of God was evidently working in favor of this organization as resources and necessary volunteers come as the Lord leads them.
I have been involved from the start, and have seen God's hand move in ways that can only be called “supernatural” in confirmation of His divine guidance. Coming in with a history of experience in missions, serving with a number of other organizations, it is refreshing to know that ALL donations submitted to Messiah Missions go to the cause, not to operation expenses or payroll. The "cause" being support of pastors, missionaries and evangelists in the field locally and internationally, along with assistance for those abused, orphaned, widows, sick, and persecuted. Praying that the Lord continue to bless this work, whereas so few religious organizations hold to the standard, submitted entirely to God in the power of the Holy Spirit under blood of Christ, which paramount to fulfilling the Great Commission.
