In short, Wesley Church supports four categories of missionaries (for more information, please refer to the Missions Policy):
Wesley members who have responded to a call to missions and who, after training, are serving overseas for a period longer than 6 months. All of them serve under a mission organization or non-governmental organization (NGO) working in partnership with the church.
A few non-members are supported as an expression of support for the mission organizations and/or the missions projects they are involved with.
Wesley members who are based in Singapore and who are working full-time in missions or evangelism at an organization based here. Their ministry may be both local and overseas.
We also support a number of people who are undergoing full-time theological training. They are preparing to serve the Lord as missionaries or in a pastoral role.
- We also support short-term workers for a period of 4 to 36 months.
According to our Missions Policy, all support given from the Church budget is reviewed every six months.
The support given to them from the missions budget of the Church covers part or most of their basic needs for housing, food, local transport and the like. The church can channel donations designated for any of the above categories of people. Please make your cheque payable to Wesley Methodist Church and provide a cover note so that we will know for whom the gift is designated and/or where to channel your gift.
