THE WORLD MISSION SERVICE CENTER SERVES BBFI CHURCHES AND THEIR MISSIONARIES – A BRIDGE BETWEEN THOSE WHO GIVE AND THOSE WHO GO.

The World Mission Service Center team processes nearly $40 million per year  as we serve over 4000 US churches and 800 missionaries in over 85 countries around the world.  Additionally, we administrate the policies determined by the pastors of the BBFI and we recognize the sending church as the missionary’s final authority and as the Biblical sending agency.

The process our missionaries go through to become a partner with the churches of the BBFI ensure that doctrinal, educational, practical and health requirements have been met.

Our missionaries, colleges and the BBFI Tribune receive 100% of every dollar that comes in for them as we do not charge for handling their contributions.

The World Mission Service Center is financed by faith just like our missionaries – through the giving of churches, individuals and missionaries. All support for the World Mission Service Center, whether from missionaries or churches, is voluntary.  Our operational costs for each missionary contribution we process are approximately $4.50 per month. We encourage each church or donor to contribute a minimum of this amount every month per missionary they support. For example, if a church supports 10 missionaries through the BBFI, a $45 monthly gift to the Mission Office would help cover these operational expenses and provides financing for the establishment of indigenous churches.

The following services that we provide to BBFI churches are just some of the benefits of partnering with us.
