While everyone isn’t called to go into full time missions service, we can support those that do. Currently, WEAGers support 107 full time missionaries/ministries through prayer and finances of over $35,000 per month. Many of the teams that we send work with our own homegrown missionaries in countries around the world.
By combining our finances, taking advantage of convenient air travel and offering ministry opportunities within people’s time schedules, we hope there are places for every WEAGer to fulfill the call of the Great Commission. We invite you to call or email us to sign up or ask questions – we would love to hear from you.
