Our story is over 30 years in the making. We’ve come a long way, and this is how we started.


Missionary Ventures is a servant organization comprised of a diverse group of Christians bound together by our love of God and our commitment to serving Him.  We are committed to drawing people from all nations into deeply personal relationships with God that brings about transformational change in their lives.  Making disciples of all the nations is not only a core value at Missionary Ventures, it is our driving passion.


Founded in 1983, Missionary Ventures International was born from an initial involvement by a small team in Guatemala after a devastating earthquake there in 1976. In support of local churches, short-term mission teams were mobilized to help relieve some of the suffering. From these efforts two core values quickly emerged, a commitment to empowering national Christian leadership and a desire to mobilize the church in missions.


From these humble beginnings involvement spread, geographically, numerically, as well as a maturing of our strategic ministry focus. Discipleship is the common thread which binds our ministries together at Missionary Ventures.  Whether training a pastor, educating a child, or preparing a short-term team member for their cross-cultural experience, we want to see lives transformed and people grow in recognition of the Lordship of Christ.


Today, this vision has grown to include the development of six offices around the globe. Our impact is made by over 140 families in the field, ministering in 75 different nations. By God’s grace the influence of the organization continues to grow rapidly. Everyone is encouraged to become a passionate follower of Jesus Christ and a part of missions – from working full-time on the field to becoming a prayer partner. The strengths of Christians here and abroad combine to make a mighty force.
