About MMI

The leaders of Makers and Means International have the firm conviction that, according to God’s Word, the Church is the focus of God’s work in this world 

Just as the first apostles focused on establishing churches wherever they preached the Gospel, so we too must follow their example in planting new churches or revitalizing failing churches in all the world.


And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-20

  • Integrity

  • Gospel-Centrality

  • Local-Church Focused

…and Means

Soon afterward he went on through cities and villages, proclaiming and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him, and also some women . . . who provided for them out of their means.

Luke 8:1-3

The leaders of Makers and Means International (MMI) have the firm conviction that, according to God’s Word, the Church is clearly the focus of God’s work in this world, and therefore it should be the focus of our work as well.

Our vision is to see leaders trained, the poor evangelized, and new churches established across the world.

Our mission is to bring together those indigenous pastors that are currently doing this Gospel work around the world with those in the U.S. who desire to finance that Gospel work.

Through the work of Makers and Means International, every dollar that is given to these indigenous leaders will continue to work far beyond the donor’s lifetime, as these churches continue to grow and multiply, and the Gospel speeds forward to new peoples and areas.

What We Do


  • To identify and verify proven, biblically-sound indigenous missions that are actively accomplishing these things.
  • To introduce those ministries to individuals and churches in the United States who are looking for trustworthy international Gospel ministries to financially support.
  • To provide a streamlined method of payment to that mission from the various supporters, in which 100% of the donation goes directly to the ministry.


We educate our ministry supporters about the physical and spiritual needs of the people their ministry reaches out to; through ministry progress reports, and alerts to new projects and opportunities in their ministry. Most importantly, we want to establish a personal relationship between the ministry leaders and the supporting churches with live skype interviews, emails, letters, and ministry videos. In this way, ministry supporters can more effectively pray for the needs and goals of the ministry and people they support.


We provide ways to personally participate in the ministry.  This might be:

  • An international discovery trip in which supporters visit the home church to meet the ministry workers, and travel with them to see the ministry in action.
  • A mercy-ministry mission in which the group travels to a poor area to distribute food, powdered milk, shoes, clothing, and vitamins while the Gospel is preached publicly and shared one-on-one.
  • A medical mission trip to a poor rural village, giving much-needed medical care while the Gospel is shared.
  • A Vacation Bible School outreach like the one held annually in a very poor district of Santo Domingo. Up to 500 children attend the 4-hour VBS program every day for a week, receiving a hot meal every day.  Many have been saved through this effort.

Once a supporter experiences their ministry in real, practical ways, they become dedicated to helping these men and women who are working so hard to take the Gospel forward!


We collect and ship goods and materials to the ministries for use in evangelization projects and outreach needs. This might include art supplies or musical instruments for the Generations of Change ministry to troubled youth; medical supplies for the medical outreach to poor districts; clothing, shoes, and food for the mercy ministry outreach; computer, audio, and video equipment for church leadership training, and more. All of these are used at all times as opportunities to reach people with the message of the Gospel. Many of these supplies open the door to Gospel presentations, leading to new believers and ultimately to new churches!

This work greatly benefits both the mission and the mission supporter. Through the efforts of MMI, the donors are able to leverage their contributions by combining it with other donors. As a result, we substantially increase the number of Gospel-centered churches throughout a region or nation. Through this multiplication, every dollar you give continues to advance the Gospel long after the money is actually spent.
