VBM recommends missionaries raise AT LEAST $10k a month. Many have much more than that. Some over $19,000/month.

VBM recommends missionaries raise a minimum of $10,000 per month of support. There are many missionaries who have well over $10k a month of support, including several directors who have anywhere between and upwards of $14,000 - $19,000 of monthly support, yet they use the non-profit status of the mission board to claim to the IRS that they live "below the poverty level."

Vision Baptist Missions suggests and recommends all their missionaries raise a minimum of $10,000 per month to cover:

  • Salary
  • Housing
  • Utilities
  • Furlough savings
  • $1,000+ per month retirement savings usually with Chris Gardner through Edward Jones
  • $400-525 per month of VBM Home Office support
  • Regional Conference Trips savings
  • Vehicle(s) replacement savings
  • Emergency savings
  • Prayer Letters
  • Ministry
  • etc.

VBM also usually recommends that all missionaries raise set up funds to move to the mission field in the ballpark of $100,000.
