“GO into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”
Jesus – Mark 16:15
Above & Beyond began in 2011 as a local church missions fund, modeled after university endowment funds. Our goal was to financially assist individuals who felt called to the mission field and to provide a fund that would assist those called in the future. In 2013, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Above & Beyond shifted to an inter-denominational foundation to mobilize multiple generations to fulfill the Great Commission.
Grants for Short-Term Mission Trips
Today, our innovative grant program helps people throughout the Body of Christ, get to the mission field immediately, while our fund structure helps givers multiply their global impact for years to come.
Each year, a portion of the Above & Beyond donations are utilized to assist missionaries, with the balance being invested to provide for tomorrow’s missionaries. After we approve funding for their short-term mission trips, missionaries first serve “above and beyond” in their own community or through a church outreach to earn reward points that are converted to financial assistance equal to 25% of their mission trip fee (maximum $1,500.)
Our 5 year goal is to be supporting 500 missionaries per year. Our 10 year goal is to have established a $10 million Foundation accelerating the mobilization of missionaries.
